FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: MOVIPREP

User Comments:


For Bowel Preparation “Wow, all that worrying for nothing. The whole process was a piece of cake. I mean seriously, it was such a breeze. Like some have said the hardest part is being so hungry. Sure, MoviPrep doesn’t taste good, but it’s not that bad either. It’s just very salty and lemony. Does that sound so scary? It’s just 4 – 8 oz. cups per dose… Easy. Just suck on a hard candy right after and the aftertaste is gone. Really, nothing to it. I was finished drinking in 45 minutes and in the bathroom 15 minutes later. Just hung out for a half an hour or so with my tablet and that was mostly it. Maybe 2 or 3 more visits before I went to bed and I slept great! Didn’t like getting up at 4 AM, but no big deal. 2 hours after starting the process I was back to my normal duties around the house… If my family didn’t see me drinking the stuff they wouldn’t have even known. The hospital visit was even easier and right after I left I directly out to eat and had a big steak and baked potato… and it was soooo good!”

For Bowel Preparation “Horrible! The first 8 oz ok, 2nd. Ok. Got to the last 8 oz of the first liter and I want to vomit! I am not one to throw up but I am begging myself to keep it down. I am chilled. It’s ok. Started at 5:45 and already watery stools at 7:26. I can not fathom having to drink the next liter. Why can’t I just take pills??? Tried hard candy-no, tried chilled-no, straw not helping! Look I would rather be on a liquid diet for 3 days!”

For Bowel Preparation “My times to take movi-prep were 6pm and 4am .I like many others premixed and chilled before use ,I also used a straw to help get passed tastebuds …took as directed 1/4 every 15 minutes 6pm drink went well Approx 10 min after finishing I had to go to the bathroom and soon it came to a point I could not leave the restroom for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. I went to bed – should have put on a depends …lol…lol..up several times durning the night.Had to wake up at 4 am for next dose …Watery dirrahea started early Even before taking moviprep..Still sitting on toilet and its been 2 and 1/2 hours …Think I’ll have a red target ring from sitting so long ..lol..lol..Hoping to stop soon to get up and get ready for a fun filled day at the doctors .This stuff works …worst part is having to stay on toilet for me”

For Bowel Preparation “Okay…Taste: Not great. A bit like a syrupy/metallic taste. Just drink it very quickly and you’ll be okay. I drank mine within about 10 minutes. Makes you feel slightly nauseous drinking it that quickly, but it’s much better than messing around and drinking it slowly.Bowel movements started about 20 minutes after drinking. You basically just pass liquids. I probably went to the toilet 5 or 6 times during 1 and a half hours after finishing the drink.Didn’t need to run to the toilet, or sit in the bathroom for the duration. You can feel that you need to go and you can go at your leisure.The second dose seemed to work quicker, within probably 5 minutes of finishing the drink. Again, over a 1.5 hour spell I probably went around 6 times – passing liquids only.Use wet wipes, whack some cream on and you’ll be okay. You get sore towards the end but it has to be done.”

For Bowel Preparation “I am a 59 year old woman in Caribbean. First colonoscopy was 14 years ago and had to drink the 4 liters. Was not horrible. Used moviprep this time. It is not pleasant but not bad at all. I just chilled it in freezer almost consistency of a slushy. I was told to do 4 and 8 pm for a morning procedure. The first dose was fairly easy to get down, I chugged about 9 ounces very 20 minutes. Started to work in about 90 minutes. I also sucked on a peppermint right after dose and that helped a lot. Remember to drink the other required liquids during process. Took 2nd litre at 8pm which I divided into 3 drinks within an hour, just to get done. Worked well, was done being cleaned out by about 11 pm. No cramps, just some slight chills. Keep drinking …tea and broth worked for me. It works, it’s not terrible. Get it done.”

For Bowel Preparation “God awful taste way to sweet very hard to get down. The pills and Gatorade I did years ago was ten times easier. Lots of gas pain, chest discomfort, smell of bleach in nose, very uneasy, agitated, hard time sleeping etc…. hate this stuff plus directions from doctor where very poor. There has to be something easier for some patients.”
