Dosing Overview

There are two possible dosing regimens.  Each regimen requires different dosing times:

Split-dose (2-Day) [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)]

Evening only (1-Day) [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)]

Both MoviPrep dosing regimens require administration of MoviPrep using the mixing container provided to dilute powder for oral solution (contents of Pouch A and B) with water to the Fill Line. Preparation of MoviPrep solution (the contents of one Pouch A and one Pouch B) occurs twice in each dosing regimen. Additional fluids must be consumed in both dosing regimens [see Dosage and Administration (2.2, 2.3)]. Instruct patients to consume only clear liquids (no solid food) from the start of MoviPrep treatment until after the colonoscopy [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]. Additionally, instruct patients to not consume any clear liquids at least 2 hours before the colonoscopy.

Split-Dose (2-Day) Regimen (Preferred Method)

The Split-Dose regimen is the preferred dosing method. Instruct patients to take two separate doses in conjunction with fluids, as follows:

Dose 1 – Take this dose the evening before the colonoscopy (10 to 12 hours before Dose 2)

1. Empty the contents of 1 Pouch A and 1 Pouch B into the container that comes with MoviPrep.

2. Add lukewarm water to the Fill Line on the container.

3. Mix to completely dissolve the contents of Pouch A and B into the lukewarm water.

4. Drink one 8 oz. (ounce) glass (240 mL) every 15 minutes. Be sure to drink all of the solution. This should take about 1 hour.

5. Fill the container with 16 oz. (two 8 oz. glasses) of clear liquid and drink all of this liquid before going to bed.

Dose 2 – Take this dose the next morning, on the day of the colonoscopy (start at least 3 ½ hours prior to colonoscopy)

1. Repeat steps 1 through 4 from Dose 1 of the Split-dose (2-Day) instructions.

2. Fill the container with 16 oz. (two 8 oz. glasses) of clear liquid and drink all of this liquid at least 2 hours before the colonoscopy.

3. Drink only clear liquids up to 2 hours before the colonoscopy or as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Then stop drinking liquids until after the colonoscopy.

Evening Only (1-Day) Regimen (Alternative Method)

The Day-Before regimen is the alternative dosing method for patients for whom the Split-Dosing regimen is inappropriate. Instruct patients to take two separate doses in conjunction with fluids as follows:

Dose 1 – Take this dose at least 3 ½ hours before bedtime the evening before the colonoscopy:

1. Empty the contents of 1 Pouch A and 1 Pouch B into the container that comes with MoviPrep.

2. Add lukewarm water to the Fill Line on the container.

3. Mix to completely dissolve the contents of Pouch A and B into the lukewarm water.

4. Drink one 8 oz. (ounce) glass (240 mL) every 15 minutes. Be sure to drink all of the solution. This should take about 1 hour.

Dose 2 – Take Dose 2 about 1 ½ hours after starting Dose 1 on the evening before the colonoscopy:

1. Repeat steps 1 through 4 from Dose 1 of the Evening only (1-Day) instructions.

2. After you complete steps 1 through 4, fill the container again to the Fill Line with clear liquid and drink all of this liquid before going to bed.

3. Drink only clear liquids up to 2 hours before the colonoscopy or as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Then stop drinking liquids until after the colonoscopy.
