The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
Finish it: Finishing the bowel prep is the best option. If you have time call the office to get a refill. Be prepared that if your not completely cleaned out then the study will have to be repeated. It is not possible to see through feces to rule out a polyp or avm etc. If you complete the prep and still notice stool then it is unlikely the study will be optimal. You can also ask pharmacist. ...Read more
What is a safe bowel prep for a severe GERD patient on a high dose of PPIs? Moviprep, Suprep, Propopik and PEG/Mag Citrate all contain harsh acids.
Bowel prep: Your gastroenterologist is best qualified to answer your question, but I don't feel that any of the recommended preps would be a significant problem for your esophagus while you're on ppi therapy. My guess is that the gastroenterologist has a preference for a good bowel prep and will prescribe it. ...Read more
Depends on why: If you are having a bowel prep for a procedure, like colonoscopy, and the prep is not done or effective, you may be sent home if there is too much stool to allow for thorough evaluation by the endoscopist. If it is for surgery, an inadequate bowel prep may increase the risk of infection after colon surgery. In any case, it is to your advantage to make sure the prep is done correctly. ...Read more
I have yet to have a bowel movement after taking almost the entire bowel prep kit. Does this mean it didn't work?
Is there an easy way for a quick bowel movement when taking Suprep, it takes up to 8 hrs for me, and they had to vacuum out the rest. Any sugguestions?
Suprep not working: Suprep is either too slow or does not work in some people. YOu should ask about another prep sucha s Osmoprep, Colyte or preferably the Gatorade (G2) /Miralax prep used with Dulcolax tabs. It is very effective in most everyone and you cannot taste the laxative. We also use Reglan (metoclopramide) by mouth to speed up the transport through your system and prevent nausea. ...Read more
What is the most likely cause of delayed Suprep? 12 hrs in and still going. Bowels are continually making loud bubbling noises, like they are angry?
Did you mean that: You had done a bowel prep and are still having diarrhea 12 hours later? It's not terribly unusual, and loud bubbling sounds can be expected as fluids rush through your bowels as part of a clean-out. ...Read more
Yes, of course: How can we help you?Get a more detailed answer ›
That's the point: Unfortunately the goal of the prep is to completely clear your large intestines of fecal matter. And since there is only one exit.... Just remember why you are doing it. Good luck! ...Read more
Doing bowel prep for colonoscopy/ged tomorrow. Only 24oz left to drink and bowel liquid isn't clear yet? Will this be a problem?
Keep drinking: Finish all liquid, and you will probably be ok. As long as the liquid is watery and without solids you should be ok. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
None: There should be no pain with a bowel prep, which are laxatives to clean the intestines. There could be mild bloating, fullness, or minimal intestinal cramping feeling. Of course, diarrhea is the natural expected result of this bowel prep. ...Read more
The active: Ingredients in Pico-Salax, largely used in Canada, are sodium picosulfate, magnesium oxide and citric acid. Together these work as a strong purgative/substance to empty bowels. These preps usually take over an hour to drink, and can begin working nearly immediately or soon. The manufacturer says "the effects...may last for a few hours after you finish it." I would say usually <6, but up to 12. ...Read more
Yes for best results: Best results are obtained by swallowing the capsule after good bowel prep. It has minute digital camera, which takes pictures when passing through the small bowel, well prepared gut will give best accurate pictures of pathology (diseased area) than unprepared bowel. ...Read more
Probably: Not a good thing. Call your endoscopist and notify them as they may decide to cancel or suggest another prep to try to salvage the procedure. ...Read more

Yes: Yes so that your colon is clean enough. If you choose not to, the endoscopist may not be able to see everything' could potentially miss a lesion, and with an inadequate prep, I usually recommend that I repeat the scope much sooner than if I was comfortable I could see everything well. E.G repeat in 5 yrs instead of 10. ...Read more
How do gastroenterologists decide which bowel prep to use? Do you get a choice or is it somehing that they get to decide and you don't get any choice?
ASK THEM: How chosen? Effectiveness and simplicity mainly, with a little personal choice based on what has seemed to work for a given doctor. Choice? Depends on the doctor, but never hurts to ask. Me the colon cancer patient will never drink supraprep again, not even if swapped for a date with a hollywood starlet. I prefer the 'lytely' products. Ask your doctor what options they can offer. ...Read more
