I have read too much water is dangerous. Isn't 4 liters of the solution dangerous?
No, but it should not be ingested all at once. The recommended dosage is at a rate of 240 mL(8 oz.) every 10 minutes, until the rectal effluent is clear or 4 liters are consumed.
The first bowel movement should occur approximately one hour after the start. Ingestion of 4 liters of solution prior to gastrointestinal examination produces satisfactory preparation in over 95% of patients.
