No, Moviprep shouldn't affect you adversely if you have had a gastric bypass. The only contraindications listed are:
Do not use MoviPrep if you are allergic to polyethylene glycol or any other electrolyte solutions (such as Pedialyte or Gatorade), or if you have:
*a perforated bowel;
*a bowel obstruction or severe constipation; or
*colitis or toxic megacolon.
If you have any these conditions, you could have dangerous or life-threatening side effects from MoviPrep.
People with eating disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia) should not use this medication without the advice of a doctor.
Before taking MoviPrep, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:
*nausea or vomiting;
*trouble swallowing; or
*a history of bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, or other chronic bowel disease.
If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take MoviPrep.
