Colonoscopy Prep - red dye by accident

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello - anyone have any experience with reading that you can mis Suprep with Crystal Light only to find out the fruit punch has the bad red dye in it ...?  I had the first portion of the 2 tonight at 6 and am supposed to do second portion tomorrow 5:30a.m. which obviously I won't mix with the fruit punch?  Just worried about false results and will the dr. want to cancel the whole thing after I've gone through this?
