Just Used Prepopik Yesterday and Had my Colonoscopy this Morning
This was my first colonoscopy and prep. People I talked to said the prep is the worst part (even though it wasn't too bad) and I had that experience as well. I used Prepopik and per the doctor's orders did the two phased approach. The day before my screening I was limited to clear solids and my first dose of Prepopik was at 6 PM. You mix the first packet with 5 oz of cold water (helps to make it go down easier) followed five 8oz glasses of clear liquid at your own pace, but needed to finish by 11 PM. The stuff started kicking in around 7:05 PM and was pretty much in the bathroom until around 8:30 and a few more trips up until about 9:10. I finished my clear liquids at 9:50 and went to bed around 10:30. I woke up at 2 AM to take the second dose followed by three 8oz classes of clear liquid again at your own pace, I just needed to make sure I finished by 5 AM. I finished at 4:45 and went back to bed for an hour. Go up at six and started getting ready. I needed to be at the medical facility by 7:30 in order to be ready for my 8:30 screening. They put me under and awoke feeling groggy but no pain or discomfort during or after. After I left the facility I was able to go eat breakfast of my choosing. As far as the Prepopik it tasted like crystal light orange drink, colder water helps. I had some minor cramping during the first dose, but it lasted less than 15 minutes. No nausea or sickness and went down easy. Hope this helps someone like me that was going through their first colonoscopy. The worst part was being in the bathroom off and on during the evening and early morning.

thank you I have to have one in the coming months and my dr had mentioned new prep from the one I had 10 years ago and that was awful to go through. The procedure was easy back then. I appreciate all your input you gave to it give me an idea of what is going on. :)
