PREPARATION FOR COLONOSCOPY WITH PREPOPIK
The day before the examination:
Drink only clear liquids (see back) all day
from the time you get up, including at least one 32
oz bottle of Gatorade,
to maintain a good state of hydration. You are not to eat any solids until
after the colonoscopy.
The evening before the examination:
At 5 p.m.
, take 1 pill of Dulcolax. At 7 PM,
fill the supplied dosing cup with 5 oz cold water
(lower line on the cup provided), and pour the contents of one packet of PREPOPIK
Stir for 2 to 3 minutes
. The solution may become slightly warm as the powder dissolves. Drink
the solution immediately after the powder has dissolved, and follow
with five - 8 oz
(total of 40 oz) of any clear liquid of your choice. The 40 oz of liquid can be consumed over 5
hours. Chilling the solution will make it more palatable. You may also drink a few sips of soda,
suck on hard candy or chew gum in between drinks to change the taste in your mouth, if
needed. The more liquid you drink before and after the solution, the cleaner the colon, and
the more thorough the examination will be. Remain close to a bathroom. Walking will help
lessen the bloated feeling. The morning of the examination:
Five hours before the procedure, dissolve the contents of the second packet in 5 oz cold water
(lower line on the cup provided), drink the solution immediately after mixing it, and follow
with four - 8 oz
drinks (total of 32 oz) of clear liquid of your choice. Remember to drink the 32 oz
over 3 hours, and you may continue drinking up until 2 hours before the time of the procedure.
You may only drink after the colonoscopy is over.
