i am a 52 yo female, having my first colonoscopy. i have had problems with constipation and i also have gastro paresis. According to gastro dr, this is normal. Anyways, i just did round one of the prep about 1.5 hrs ago, and nothing. i have been on milk of magnesia(3tblsp) for the last week.and it didnt help either. Is this normal for the prep NOT to work, or what should i do. Colonoscopy is scheduled for 7:30am. next dose due at 3am... I dont want to go thru this again. what can i do to make sure this works so i dont have to repeat
I sure hope everything went okay for you, I was looking for similar answer, took me a few minutes more than 1.5 hrs to work after first prep, was very sudden. I like this a lot better than meds I had to drink last time. My instructions are to take again at 4 am and have to be there at 8 so hope it works as fast in the morning!
It didn’t work for me within the first two hours in addition to experiencing sever stomach cramping. So I returned to my old faithful which is a sea salt water flush. I drank a full 8oz of that, and violá, immediate relief. Because of the severe cramping and bloating, I may resort to a second sea salt flush instead of the SuPrep. It not agreeing with me at all.
