    The liquid was easy to drink and not a gallon as some preps. However, the sweetener caused my ears to ring solid! The prep didn't work for 2 1/2 hours and the cramping before it finally worked was horrible, like a knife that lasted only 5 seconds but they came every 15 seconds.

    I found moviprep almost impossible to ingest. Every sip had me gagging. I was able to get down the first dose of one quart, but was unable to do the second. I knew that had I taken one more taste, I would have been sick to my stomach. Colonoscopy was done, with no difficulty.

    Absolutely disgusting taste and texture. Made me gag with every sip. Couldn't finish it, as I was afraid I would vomit.

    Wow. I do not wish to scare people but honestly please please ask your doc if you can take something else!! I vow NEVER to use this preparation again. I ended up on IV in A and E a week later due to dehydration caused by the diarrhoea which NEVER STOPPED!! Taken prior to a sigmoidoscopy (which it later transpired I couldâ??ve had something gentler! for) to investigate unexplained weight loss. ... Show Full Comment
