      The thing about moviprep is that you have to drink 4 litres of the ghastly stuff!!!. In all my previous colonoscopies i was given PICOLAX. You just disolve this in a small cup of water..then drink 2 to 4 litres of clear fresh water so its nowhere near as bad as moviprep. The picolax worked just as well if not better to cleanse my bowel and im going to insist on it for my next colonoscopy..OR buy it myself from the chemist!!!..regards!!
