Stuff they gave me two years ago was a piece of cake. Like a grape Pedialyte when you cut it with cold water. Like 18-24 ounces twice.... The prep has come a long way if you got the right one.

Hey Jason.
Each bottle is 6 oz.
Sodium sulfate
Potassium sulfate
Magnesium sulfate
Doesn’t say anything about flavor.

Pretty sure it's the same stuff I took a couple weeks ago HM...I slam it. Taste wasn't too bad.

Hate the entire ordeal but you gotta...sucks I'll likely never be a 10yr candidate. Follow up consult is this week. I also hate waiting rooms.

Last stuff I drank was not good but I worst part was the incoming volume.

Taste Not really a big deal considering the importance.

One I did a couple months ago, my dr. gave me a list of over the counter stuff to take and there was no large volumes of bad tasting liquids... Just water and mild flavored stuff... Don't remember what it was, but it was a LOT better than my prior episodes of being violated!

The one Smart posted isn't bad though and a lot less volume too.

Best advice Ive gotten about prep, eat super light a day or two before. Soup and sandwich type of meals.

I was cleaned out before bedtime, and slept through the night.

And Desitin is your new best friend.

Also, if you have a tablet pick out a few movies to watch. You'll not be able to leave the thrown for 2 to 3 hours without confidence.

Lastly, when you begin the suprep, stay close to the thrown.

mine tasted like lemon pledge and I cannot drink sprite or 7up ever again... Best way i found is make sure it's COLD and just down the whole thing as fast as you can. I didn't know they do pills now, so i'll be asking about those next time!!

You're the first I have heard that prefers the jug.... Surprep is basically two ice cold water bottle size drinks chugged 8 hours apart and it's done

I did hear there was a pill for this now. Glad thats true.

How many pills are needed for the same results?

I have my initial consultation in February. Earliest appointment they had. I guess that business is booming right now.

I took the pills last month and it was a breeze. Got the procedure done because they found a golf ball size tumor in my colon and I am only 49. Fortunately, everything is pointed to benign right now but still have to have surgery on Dec. 30th to remove the tumor.

Do it...I had a scheduled physical & my dr was looking through my chart & told me to go get one due to colon cancer in the family (grandmother)

They removed a large polyp that was sent to 3 different labs due to it looking like cancer...said it was within a few weeks of turning bad. This was at 45.

My next one is schedule for when I turn 81. I figure by that time I won't even need the Moviprep. It probably just come out naturally every morning after a cup of Major Dickason's dark roast.

I asked about the pills and was told” she only prescribes them to people that have difficulty I’m swallowing. And the results aren’t as good”.
I’m glad it’s a female doc though. Shes been calling me Tripod ever since my first check up.

My prep I got from the dr had 4 pills I took the night before with the liquid, but pretty sure they are OTC.

HM, I take that AM drink at least one hour earlier than they recommend.

Yessir. And I may not drink all of it if all I’m passing is liquid. This is about my fifth or sixth one. The best part is the knockout. The funniest part is the wake-up. Your laying there and hear the guy in the next bed let an atom bomb go!

Please get your colonoscopy starting at 45. My mother got colon cancer at 50 years old and died 2 years later. 52 years is way too early to loose your mom. I was 28 years old. I had my first procedure at 45 Dr. cut 10 polyps out of me. I have taken one every 4 to 5 years. Had polyps removed every time. I'll be 70 in January. Just do it.

No..... Did the recommended meal and fasting. Started first 16 ounce drink slam at 6.....First bout at 7:30.. then a couple of bouts between it and till 11. Slept from then to 3:30....woke up around 3:30 for 16 oz slam #2. Clear and solid liquid a couple more times. Was at the medical center office by 6:30 ....on the bed by 7:15 waiting my turn.



I like the 32 ounces of pedialyte type drink to your 96 of milky chalky concoction... to each their own..
