I've tried other bowel prep's before and been unable to finish because I simply couldn't stomach the *^$# ...
The amount you consume is a split dose of 5 ounces (preferred method), the first dose is followed by 5 8 oz. glasses of a clear liquid, and the second dose on the morning of the colonoscopy is followed by 3 8oz. Glasses of liquid.
The taste is surprisingly pleasant, it has a mild lemon taste (not at all salty) - unlike any preps I have previously used. Really, quite doable!
This is my 3rd colonoscopy and just used Prepopik.
By a mile, the BEST & MOST TOLERABLE prep I have ever used!
No salty, gritty taste at all! Tastes like just like orange soda.
My doctor said I could mix the powder with any clear liquid. So, instead of cold water, I mixed it with white cranberry juice, not at all bad!
I have already had 16 of the 40 ozs of the required clear liquid you must drink following the first Prepopik dose.
Hopefully, this prep stays on the market as I would never use any other again!
I never, ever go to websites to give comments, but I felt I had to with Prepopik. My story is as follows:
This past Sunday I started prepping for a colonoscopy. I dreaded, as I had done this in the past. Anyway, I started drinking the 64 oz of Gatorade with the over the counter stuff in my initial prep plan. As soon as I started drinking the Gatorade, I started feeling nausea. After 4 glasses, I vomited just about all of it up. I still had four more glasses to drink. So in despair, I called my Gastro. He said that I could try Prepopik, as it's recommended for people with nausea issues. He then called the script in for me. I was concerned, but had not choice, so I tried it. What a world of difference. Although the stuff didn't taste great, I was able to down the 5 oz without issue, then drink the recommended amount of water with no issue. I had the colonoscopy yesterday and all went well. I will definitely choose Prepopik the next time I need a colonoscopy.
