Reviews for Prepopik to treat Bowel Preparation

Review by AlleyP (taken for less than 1 month): User Rating:  

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.

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!

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.
