For Bowel Preparation: “Osmoprep was so easy to use. I could not even swallow one glass of the gallon prep, yet swallowing pills with your choice of liquids that taste good to you was the difference between my having a colonoscopy or taking my chances. My colonoscopy was yesterday and it all went great. I'll recommend this to everyone.”

For Bowel Preparation: “I also couldnt keep the liquid down, so I used the pill. After 45 minutes the medicine kicked in with no cramps or bloating. I did mine at 1pm and 7pm. I turned into bed at 11pm and only had to get up once. Slept great and had my test at 10am the next day.”

For Bowel Preparation: “I have taken OsmoPrep twice, once for my Colonoscopy, the second time for surgery. I had no problems either time. No vomiting, cramps, pain. I did have to cut the pills in half because it was difficult for me to swallow them. Other then that, no problems.”

“This is my experience with OSMOPREP: Procedure was at 4pm Thursday so the directions state to stop eating 12 hours before starting treatment 1. I ate dinner at 5:30 Wednesday and nothing after that. Started taking only 3 pills with 8 oz of water Thursday 5:45 am . after each pill taking I took a walk to prevent bloating and nausea. It worked well plus the walking seemed to make room for more water. So after 5 glasses of water and 15 pills things were good. The treatment started working about 1 hour after the first pills and 15 minutes between. ”

For Bowel Preparation: “After about the third set of 4 pills each followed by 8oz of water I had projectile vomiting. I was so sick and in so much pain. I thought it was going to be a great alternative to the liquid prep which I can not tolerate at all. Now a week later and I am still having bloating, stomach cramps, black bowel movements, weight gain and very swollen ankles (which is something I have never suffered from). I also did not take the last set of 4 pills and had to give myself a fleets enema to complete the prep. I noticed afterward however that it says to use caution if taking lisinopril and oxycodone so perhaps that is why I had such a difficult time.”

For Bowel Preparation: “I thought this was the perfect solution for not having to drink a gallon of awful colon cleansing drink. Boy was I wrong. I ended up vomiting and not being able to finish the last six pills. I had to use 2 Fleets to finish cleaning it in the morning. It's 2 weeks after my procedure and I'm still having diarrhea and cramping. Next time, I'm power through the gallon of prep!”
