Reviews for Prepopik to treat Bowel Preparation
Review by IR:
This a very small quantity prep. I just reduced solid intake 48 hours. I had breakfast - mostly protein and started prep 5pm that day. Much easier to take using straw - I drank seven 8oz drinks over 3-4 hours - everytime I went to bathroom, I drank 8oz. I did not notice severe cramps etc. Second prep was harder and I only took four 8oz drinks. My last visit to bathroom was clear. Happy with this product...

I had violent vomiting with this medication. I tried taking it twice and within one hour I couldn't hold it down. It's only plus is it does not taste bad.

Review by AlleyP (taken for less than 1 month):
Much more expensive than the Miralax prep. I paid ~$80 out-of-pocket. I did like the fact that you only drink 10 ounces. (split in 2 doses) Then you follow up with clear liquids of your choice. The orange flavor was tolerable. I was instructed to take the 2nd dose at 8pm. I woke up at 3pm with almost unbearable stomach cramps. I've had a baby & kidney stones and the pain rated right up there! This was my 4th colon prep and I have never had this experience before. I got a thorough cleansing but don't know if that sort of pain is worth having this prep.

Review by Dianem0425 (taken for less than 1 month):
Used for colonoscopy prep since it was the smallest amount to drink over the longest time. Tasted like sprite. Drank 7 8 oz glasses of water over next hour. 90 minutes and had 3 explosions. Then 2 more glasses of water until 2nd dose 5 hrs later. 2 glasses of water, 30 minutes later, awful stomach cramps, dizziness, numb fingers and toes, dry mouth. Thought I was going to pass out from the pain. Worse than labor pains! Took 30 minutes to pass. Went to bed exhausted. Definitely cleaned me out!

Review by Kimo49er:
Used for repeat colonoscopy after my first one, a year ago. Compared to Golytely that I used the first time, this was easier for me and tasted 100% better. The Dr saw no difference in the quality and now I don't have to return for 5 years. Why anyone would opt for a high volume, nasty tasting prep when this is available I don't know.
