It DID NOT WORK!!!
Followed directions to a tee. This did NOT produce a bowel movement for 14 hours--and then only once with straining. It DID NOT WORK! Very frustrating!!!!
Prepopik SIde Effects
I am a 56 year old male and had never had a colonoscopy before; it was time. Had the consultation and was prescribed Prepopik for the prep, the day prior to the 9am procedure. I was told to take my 1st 5 ounces (along with a gradual 40 ounces of water over the next 5 hours) at 3pm, and then the second dosage at 3am. I never took the 2nd dosage.....here's why.
By 7pm I had developed a very bad headache. By 7:30p it was unbearable, I was starting to get bad chills, so I had to lay down. Between 7:30p- 12m, I was alternatively freezing and then sweating profusely. By idnight I was getting very nauseous. By 12:45 I was throwing up several times. At 1:15 I threw up again. Still had a horrible headache. By 9am, after taking Advil, my headache was gone. And as I write this at noon, I am 99% perfect again.
As foolish as this might be, I will NOT make another attempt.
I was prescribed Prepopik Power for upcoming colonoscopy which I took.It cleaned me out ok.From the day I took it I got sicker and sicker.Six weeks later my colon ruptured and lost 6 units of blood before I got surgery.I lost all my colon.
Prepopik Side Effects
CAUTION: I took PREPOPIK Thurs. It tasted decent. I'm healthy and fit. I developed a severe headache, stomach ache and nausea. I almost threw up the 2nd dose. Miserable night! Four days after a successful colonoscopy, I have indigestion/heartburn, gas, mild pressure in the lower chest, intestinal "rumbling", mild light- headedness and mild heart palpitations. I believe SOME of this is lingering effects from the Prepopik. READ ALL THE CAUTIONS BEFORE CHOOSING THIS DRUG. I DON'T RECOMMEND IT.
Just Used Prepopik Yesterday and Had my Colonoscopy this Morning
