Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy?
Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects.

Magnesium Citrate worked for my daughter when she just couldn't drink the prescribed stuff (the old stuff, but I think similar to Suprep). And an enema. But check with your doctor or someone at the hospital first! If you're not cleaned out you'll have to do it again!

My daughter just met with her dr. to schedule a colonoscopy. She told him about my bad experience with Suprep. He said it is not feasible to have to drink 48 oz. in one hr. A stomach just cannot handle it. He never prescribes Suprep for anyone.
Finished the first dang dose. It took me praying to God and 45 minutes to get it down. I swallowed each gulp and a lot came back up but was able to swallow it except a small amount. I am so scared I won't be able to get the second bottle down.
THIS TRICK IS THE BEST! Put liquid Anbesol (used for numbing tooth and gum pain) on a Q-Tip and wipe it all over your tongue (make sure to get the back and sides). It numbs your tongue and taste buds for about 15-30 minutes, allowing you to drink the Suprep tasting very little.

Getting endoscopy and colonoscopy at same time. Took Nexium at 4pm for my reflux. Took first dose of Suprep at 5pm (pretty nasty). I will definitely mix up the second batch so the nastiness doesn't sit on the bottom. First BM at 6pm. 3-4 bouts until 8:30pm. Dreaming of bacon and eggs after the procedure. Will wake up at 6am for lovely second dose. Not pleasant but there are worse things in life.
Same with me. It does what it's supposed to do with no cramps, no nausea, no explosions, no pain.
I just took my last swallow. Did not taste as bad as other remarks. Kind of sweet and fruity. It wasn't like drinking a margarita but I tolerated it. It took 4 gulps and in between each gulp I sucked on a lemon hard candy for a couple seconds. Hold your nose, gulp and have the candy ready.
I am having my first colonoscopy am tomorrow morning...not to worried about the preceedure ...just tje prep part...don't like stomach cramps and bloating nor nausea...hope the surprep doe not give me these sife effects
I should make it clear that the doctor refused to do the procedure because these arryhtmuas were happening. So, not only did I have to go through the SUPREP for nothing, but also never got the colonoscopy I needed.
Okay, now I just vomited the water and Gatorade I drank a bit earlier. I'm done with this prep. Definitely not taking the second dose.
My colonoscopy is scheduled for late this morning. I had nothing to eat Ll day yesterday but drank lots of chicken broth throughout the day, which helped. I took the first dose of Suprep at 5:00 PM yesterday and the 32 oz of water followed by Gatorade. Everything came out and I am running clear. I have a splitting headache and cannot sleep. It's 3:41 am. I'm supposed to take the second dose at 5:00 am but since I am running clear, I can't imagine why I need to put myself through that again.
I found I got very light headed before my first bm.
I agree with you..while I did not have a bad reaction with Suprep I don't think I could ever drink it again..the thought of it makes me gag. I didn't vomit as some people did and it does do a good job of cleaning out but after getting through the first dose I didn't know how I could do it a second time in the middle of the night. Ugh it was pretty rough.

I had drink clear liquids all day b/f the prep. At 6 p.m. the day before, I had to mix 6 oz. of Suprep with 10 oz. water. In the next hour, I had to drink an additional 32 oz. of water. By 7 p.m. it all came up. Called dr. He said I had the med in my system for an hr. so it will probably work. Two small movements throughout the evening. At 2 a.m. vomiting and terrible headache. Had to take 2nd dose of Suprep at 5 a.m.. Lost it all. Dr. said prep was not good, did procedure anyway. All is well with results. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND SUPREP--I'D RATHER GIVE CHILDBIRTH THAN THIS PREP.
I took SUPREP and it went well. I don't care what it tastes like, I just squirted a big squeeze of my favorite MIO flavor into it, and then held my breath and drank it straight down. It took a long time for anything to come out, and taking the second batch the next morning was tougher than the first, even the MIO did not help enough. I developed heart arrhythmia with NO prior history of any heart problem. I'm hoping the arrhythmia will be only temporary, but I will NEVER take this bowel prep again. Not worth the risk of serious heart problems.
I"m reading the responses, and although it's been a few weeks since I did this, I still cringe thinking about this horrid prep. For anyone who can tolerate this or even thinks it's not so unbearable, well, you deserve a medal in my opinion. I cannot imagine getting through this prep without major discomfort. I"m actually wondering if some of the positive posts are actually people who work for Suprep?? ; )
in this day and age when one has to plug their nose,chase with shooters of honey to ultimately still be doubled over with pain or vomit...WHEN the prep is worse than the procedure (and this is the supposed top prep) it's clear the pharmaceutical company owns the market here. More so than not and other than this post the general response to this prep is negative...Cmon guys..one should not have to tolerate uncomfortable to this degree
I am a 59 year old female weight 130. This is do able. First, have a positive outlook because that will help. Next, drink 8 oz of fluid (water, Gatorade) no coffee or tea every 15 min for 2-3 hours before you start. This will eliminate the cramping. Use a straw, hold your nose and have honey near by to take the bitter taste off your tongue (you know "a spoonful of honey helps the medicine go down"). Do not let go of your nose until finished. This will eliminate the nausea. I did the full dose the first time but only half the second as everything coming out of me is clear. Good lick!
Unless you have a history of polyps or colon cancer you probably won't have another colonoscopy as I don't think medicare will pay after 75.
Suprep Bowel Prep WITHOUT flavor - I swished with Oragel immediately before drinking the Suprep. People - I could NOT taste the drink AT ALL. As a person with ulcerative colitis, colonoscopies have become a yearly trauma. Not anymore. Try this! So happy this popped in my head!! You'll need about 1/2 teaspoon. Swish and then rinse with water (you will not wash the numbing away) then drink Suprep. Completely killed my taste buds.
