Colonoscopy Prep Question

Hello, I'm new here. Been having some weird symptoms so getting colonoscopy (my first). My doc prescribed the moviego or whatever it's called. I've read that it's easier to do a Mirilax/ducolox purge though because it's easier to get down. Do I have to do the one my doctor prescribed? There are detailed instructions on the mirliax one from reputable places so I know how to do it correctly.

Can't call my doc now, procedure is early Mon morning.

Also, do I have to get up early or can I just do part 2 late the night before?

THanks for any advice.

Re: Colonoscapy Prep Question


I don't know about your prep, where I live we are given "Picolax" which you take three days before the Colonoscopy.
Hope all goes well with your test,

Re: Colonoscapy Prep Question

If you can't get ahold of your Dr then I suggest you follow exactly what he instructed to avoid any issues Monday

Good Luck
