Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy?

Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects.

Thanks!

Did the liqid diet day b4, took first bottle as instrucked. Got it all down within first hr. Its very hard to tolerate toward the end of the dose. I was not able to get the two 16 oz. doses of water in within the next hr.
Next morn took 2/3rds of second dose and threw up some of it. Couldn't finish off the other third. The stuff is horrible to tolerate, I tried very hard to keep it down. Seems like whats coming out is yellow. Don't know if The dr will do the procedure

To get around that, I used a mint mouthwash (Scope or a generic). After drinking about 1/3 of the first dose of Suprep, I IMMEDIATELY rinsed with the mouthwash. That was very effective at taking away the rancid flavor of the prep. Repeated that for the next two-thirds of the prep, and it really wasn't that bad.

I am scheduled for a colonoscopy tomorrow morning at 9am. The instructions I received from the doc was to take the 1st bottle mixed with either water, sugar-free Crystal Light lemonade, or sugar-free 7-Up. I went with the Crystal Light. The taste wasn't that bad - very sweet and very salty, but the lemonade kind of covered it up. I drank it slowly, over about 30 minutes, then took a hour to chase with two more 16oz cups of lemonade. 45 minutes after pulling the pin on this gut -grenade, the urge hit and the first trip took care of any real solid wastes present. No cramping or bloating. Not really anything crazy, just a forceful movement. The 2nd trip though, about 30 minutes later, had me in amazement at the sheer volume of mostly clear liquid that came forth, and the force and constant flow of it. A few minutes before trip #2 launched, there was some mild cramping. I think I actually laughed out loud at what was transpiring. 30 minutes later, trip #3 yielded about the same results as trip #2, just not as voluminous and dramatic, and there was much, much less residue. I am now just sitting here typing this, wondering if there will be a trip #4. I do feel a little bloated and there are some rumblings in the gut, so I may stay up a bit to make sure I don't have some late-night emergency. I have to get up and drink round #2 at 5am tomorrow and then off to get the probing done. I will follow up with results and impressions.

Suprep tastes horrible. If bowel is running clear after the first dose, do you have to do the second? I will be extremely reluctant to have a colonoscopy again if Suprep has to be used. Also, what is the grape/berry flavor that people are talking about? The stuff that I was given is very salty and smells/tastes like musty mold.

Have you tried other methods? I used this for my first colonoscopy prep and I had no adverse effects. Lucky, I guess. Yes, it does taste bad but I would rather drink those two bottles and the water chasers than drink a gallon of that "sweet" stuff that my mother used and gagged with every swig. Everyone has different tastes and different reactions. Don't judge the people who wrote positive reviews. I never heard of Suprep until my doctor prescribed it to me. Hopefully your colonoscopy went well.

I can't help but to suspect that some people were engaged to post postitives for this product. That is a terrible thing to suspect, but when I look at how many positives vs negatives for these posts, something STINKS! Trust me, This stuff is VOMITIOUS bad....it is SO SO bad! I could never do it again it was so discusting and plain almost impossible to force myself to drink without puking! ! Or it would have to be life or death it was so putridly AWFUL!! Just AWFUL!! I seriously don't know how I did not vomit the second bottle! IF people actually did post good review for this product as a lie for money or to build stock price up or whatever ....SHAME ON YOU for messing with people's lives!

Took the first bottle at 6pm (mixed with water) and drank the 2 16oz water glasses. Face turned red as a beet and was hot. Felt like I had sunburn and didn't feel well. Very chilled. Stopped running to the bathroom before 11:30. Don't remember the time as I had fallen asleep. Next morning called the doctor and was told not to take the second bottle due to my reaction. Colon was clean enough from first bottle to do the colonoscopy with no issues.

Just came home from colonoscopy after using suprep. Everything went well, but the first dose of the prep took 8 hours to begin cleaning me out. The second dose worked much quicker..had bad chills after drinking each dose..and a congested nose that I had to keep blowing in between bathroom runs..other than that..I lived through a successful procedure.

What do you do if you've taken the first dose of surprep over a 20 min period and then vomit what seems like almost the whole 16 oz. My colonoscopy is at 7:30am and I'm worried that I won't be clear for the morning. Anyone else have this issue?

That's fine if you can tolerate chugging 32 oz. If not, it's perfectly all right to take it slower. I drank the 16 oz. glasses of water over a period of one hour -- 30 minutes for each glass. It's all going down the same pipe, so you don't really gain (or lose) anything by chugging.

This is my fourth colonoscopy, so I've had a chance to try different approaches. For me, taking it slow makes the prep a lot more tolerable. And fast or slow, the result will be the same.

Despite the bad taste of the prep, it doesn't help to chug this stuff to "get it over with." I sipped the prep over a period of 30 minutes, and used a timer so I wouldn't feel any need to rush. You can also keep a piece of hard candy -- like a lemon drop -- in your mouth while sipping the prep. The candy helps to kill the aftertaste following each. This makes it easier to tolerate. Do the same with the two 16 oz. glasses of water to follow: 30 minutes for each glass.

I don't understand the issues people have with this. Yes.....it doesn't taste that great but I got it down by sipping through a straw in about 20 minutes and immediately chugged the required addition two 16oz of water. After that and 20 minutes later it worked. No cramping or headache. My only issue is that my foot fell asleep while sitting on the toilet! Part two in the morning.

I took the first dose as directed at 8 PM. Bitter, salty, fruity, chemical tasting. Not pleasant but bearable. I used warm water because I had throat surgery a week and a half ago. And then I BRUSHED MY TEETH. It totally removes the after taste. Drank the plain water watching tv. By 8:37, I went to the bathroom, and had impressive results considering I have been on semi solid food for ten days. I just stayed in there for about half an hour then came in to lay down. I will get up again when done with this post. I got adult diapers and diaper rash ointment and was all ready for this crazy situation, and this has been so manageable. Tomorrow morning, will do the same thing. Then off to the center at 1pm. I have had no cramping, no gas, no discomfort.

Mine is at 9:00 am and my doc's handout said to start at 6:00 PM with the first and finish the second 4 hours before the procedure ( at 5:00 A.M.) The other handout says start between 3-5 PM. Go figure. I suspect everyone gets the same instructions no matter when their procedure is. His printout said to allow 2-3 hours overall for the first dose. It started to work 7 hours after I started the first one, I kid you not.That's 4 hours after I finished, not so far out of line with what a couple others said. An hour on and off the can and then to the second dose. I have not started that yet. I'm curious about why people's instructions vary on the times. I'm looking forward to the anesthetic so I can get some sleep

Just had my first colonoscopy today. I'm a 51 year old woman. My husband had his in the spring and endured movieprep and vomited that so I asked for something different. I was given suprep. I had a light breakfast yesterday morning consisting of toast and 2 scrambled eggs. After that I drank water and had orange jello, sucked on some jolly ranchers (green) and also gummy bears. I was kind of tired of the citric taste but I was surprised that I wasn't more hungry then I was. Lunch was vegetable soup with the pasta etc strained out.

I was to start the prep at 6 and so about 4:30 I took a nap thinking I'd be up late. I mixed it with cold tap water. We chilled my husbands prep and I was thinking that may have been why he threw it up (btw...he ended up taking OTC Magnesium Citrate and was cleaned out fine). I had a bowl of chicken broth (again just strained out the pasta) ready along with 2 large glasses of water (one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom). I used a straw to drink it down but towards the end I just chugged it. I didn't want to mix it with another clear liquid because I didn't want to ruin the flavor of that drink, plus I didn't know how the flavor would mix with the suprep.

The solution wasn't something that I would sit and drink while watching a movie, but it wasn't horrible. I sipped chicken broth right after and then started chugging the water. To me, that was the most difficult bc I was full and felt a little chilled.

It took maybe 45 mins to have anything happen, and it wasn't constant. I was in and out of the bathroom all evening. I was able to make it to the bathroom without any issues. I went to bed at 10:30 and slept no prob until about 3:30 (not unusual..,I wake up at night due to my husbands snoring). I came down and had Gatorade, I was a little worried as I didn't go as much as I imagined i would and I was still having brown watery stools. My second dose was to be at 6am (my procedure was at 2pm). The second went down fine along with the water.

Then it seemed to be more often and soon I was passing clear fluid.

The colonoscopy itself was fine. I am good for 5 years.
