Both products require two doses for a complete preparation prior to a colonoscopy. Clenpiq and Prepopik are both a combination of sodium picosulfate, a stimulant laxative, and magnesium oxide and anhydrous citric acid which form magnesium citrate, an osmotic laxative. Both agents are used in adults for cleansing the colon in preparation for colonoscopy and are manufactured by Ferring Pharmaceuticals.
Update: Prepopik has been discontinued.
