Colonoscopy Prep Not Working Miralax
When its gone: Continue the prep till its gone to get the best results.
I have a colonoscopy tomorrow. I took my bowel prep of about an hour ago. In how much time will it start working? Will a gatorade/miralax mix not work?
May not work: A gatorade and MiraLAX combination is not a common bowel prep in my experience. Miralax is an excellent laxative but if only one dose is taken, it is not likely to clean the colon out as well as is optimal for colonoscopy. A single dose might not produce a bm for a day or 2. Gatorade is an electrolyte-rich drink but not likely as effective as GoLytely or other polyethylene glycol solutions.See 3 more doctor answers
Colonoscopy prep. I have yellow liquid diarrhea. Does this mean bile ducts/organs are working properly? Thank you very much..
Yes and no.: Avoid red and purple, but orange doesn't usually cause much problem. Be sure to consume a lot of liquids, too. Check with your doctor's office, they might have unique restrictions/limitations. The red jello can get confused with fresh blood!
Yes: As long as the candy is being consumed during the prep time, that should be fine.
Not much: Different doctors will ask you to do different preparation. A lot of time it is Dr. Preference based on their experience.
No time at all: Your colonoscopy prep should have been done with Go-lytely a mixture of laxity r and electrolytes which stops any electrolyte depletion. If not, you can replenish your self in a few hours if otherwise healthy by drinking something electrolyte rich like coconut water.See 2 more doctor answers
I read the dosage wrong on the colonoscopy prep. I drank 4 doses in less than 10 mins. Will I be alright?
Possibly: The prep called GoLytly is polyethelyne glycol which when ingested causes an outpouring of body fluid into the GI tract which can lead to dehydration. It is more important to have a bland diet without roughage several days before and use a Fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) to clean the distal colon. A clean colon is the important issue and not the total use of oral meds to clean out the bowel.
Dilute: Dilute with gatorade, or powerade if ok with your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
