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

I am glad you mentioned your weight. I was wondering why the same amount needs to be consumed by different body weights. My procedure is tomorrow morning at 8:30 (it's now 3:30 and I can't sleep), and have been unable to finish the second dose. I am still trying to down water, and things aren't "running clear" but pretty close to clear.

I just finished the first dose. It is HORRIBLE!!! Imagine a really bitter saltlick in liquid form. Yuck! I tried first with just water but couldn't handle that so I added some tea but that didn't help at all either. I'm dreading the second dose scheduled for tomorrow. Next time I think I will insist on something else. ANYTHING else.

I added some powered crystal light lemonade mix to the 16 oz I prepared. I added about 1/3 of the usual package that goes into a 500ml (16 oz) bottle. It really helped, I think.

immediately following the colonoscopy, you must eat VERY nourishing food and take a multivitamin and eat a banana to get your potassium levels back up

I only hope I don't ever have to do this again. The colonoscopy was the easy part, but the Suprep and the recovery is a different matter. The Suprep seems way to strong or harsh for me. I had dizziness, nausea, and extreme cramping. It's a full 24 hours now after the colonoscopy and I still have weakness, cramping, and nausea. I hope that the doctor prescribes a different prep next time.

Drink 1/3 of the diluted mixture, then water chaser, then another 1/3, then water chaser, then last 1/3, then water chaser.

I am only 16 years old and I undergo my first colonoscopy tomorrow at 3 PM. I was prescribed Suprep and let me say- it is absolutely terrible. I took my first 16oz dose at 5pm today. The taste is like dirty thick salt water mixed with grape cough syrup and cheap alcohol. I diluted my prep with tap water and chased it with cold water. I couldn't even manage to get through the first dose without vomiting. Next dose is at 5am tomorrow morning before the procedure. wish me luck :(

My experience with Suprep turned out much better than I had anticipated. I mixed it with white grape/peach juice and it tasted exactly like a vodka-redbull mixed drink. I made sure it was ice cold and used a straw and just chugged. Started working in about 30mins; minimal abdominal discomfort. I began my clear liquid diet 24hrs prior to beginning my prep. Took my second dose the following morning and it was even easier that time. I was going clear about 4hrs prior to my procedure.

I also found Suprep to cause serious nausea on an empty stomach (liquid diet). For the first dose, I drank 1/3, ate a little white bread, drank next 1/3, ate a little white bread, drank last 1/3. Then a half hour later, I drank a lot of water for two hours. For the second dose, I drank 1/3 at a time, following each with a water chaser and then drank a lot of water for the next two hours. I also put myself in a very relaxed state because that decreases the nausea. Lots of running to the loo all night long LOL. The last three hours I ran clear and by the 7am colonoscopy, was clean as a whistle and dehydrated and tired, having no sleep. I experienced no cramping with the cleanse, and that was nice.

Had my first colonoscopy today, used suprep for prep. I had read quite a few of the post before hand and this was very helpful. I had no problems at all with the suprep. It tasted very weird, but tolerable. It worked great for me with no side effects. I took first dose yesterday at 5:00 pm and second dose at 11:00 pm. My procedure was at 7:00 am. Everything went well and I received a clean bill of health! I mixed suprep with chilled water and a splash of ginger ale, then poured it into a water bottle and chugged it down. It began to work in thirty minutes. Hope this helps someone else. I prayed and had others praying for me as well. I give God the glory for bringing me through this "adventure".

Well I drank it all as I was concerned I would not be thoroughly sure to use the Vaseline and wet wipes if you have them. I guess I would drink until everything runs clean.

Thanks, friend.

I was startled to feel chilled too. I checked my temp and it was 97.1, so it was a real chill. It lasted quite a while, too.

I really think you have to drink plenty of fluids to dilute the prep. Have broth, even gummy bears as long as they are yellow or clear. I had a hard time getting the prep down also but I did finish the water within the hour time frame. Lying down is the worst. I have reflux and you shouldn't lie down until at least three hours after consuming food/drink or it will come back up. I am good for another 10 years! Maybe they will have something better by then.

I have had many preps before and most are awful. I'm trying to get the second part of this prep down now. I'm struggling. I've had colon cancer previously so I want to be really clean but this is awful. After the first bottle & water I felt lousy, headache, very cold and cramps. I fell asleep about 5 hours after taking it but woke up with it coming back up into my month. Gross I know. I am having trouble keeping the second part down.

Just had colonoscopy two days ago. Given script for Suprep. Came to this site before beginning prep for tips. Was terrified of the taste and possible gag/vomiting reactions based on posters here. Found the taste tolerable. Mixed only with cool water and drank within 5-10 minutes. Took first prep at 4 and had first movement within 20 minutes. No cramping or bloating. Continued to drink water over the next two hours. Absolutely necessary to clean and soothe bottom after each movement because backside will become raw. I used wet wipes and lathered on the Vaseline after each movement. Toilet runs became less frequent as the night wore on; took second dose at 10:30--up until 3:00 am. Procedure was scheduled for 7:00. Very tired, sore bottom, low grade headache probably from lack of food and sleep. Followed food/drink prep suggested by doctor and ate nothing day before the exam. Was definitely clear and clean after second prep. Worst was how bad my bottom hurt, even with all the Vaseline. Told nurses that morning I would never do this again. To which they replied, "Don't ever say never..." I was grateful for this reality check--colonoscopy prep and a sore bottom is nothing compared to the suffering of cancer patients these nurses must see every day. Will not complain again and will have another test in 10 years--no history of colon cancer in my family and my scope was clear.

The key is to get clear u nay only need one dose to achieve that.. really just depends. I would say to eat very light for a few days before u start prep then of course nothing on prep day.. this helps a lot.. just remember the more u put in the more u have to get out..

I started with my second bottle a few hours before my scheduled time . I was suppose to start at 4:00 am but I chose to take it at 1:00 am hoping I could get a few hours of sleep before scheduled time of 10:30. I got close to 1/2 of the mixture down and threw it up so I didn't finish the final half. I was afraid I wouldn't be cleaned out enough since I didn't keep any of second bottle down so I purchased a fleet enema early am. After my procedure my gastro doctor said I was cleaned out inside and must have done well with the prep. I did drink a lot of water for my liquid diet. I will never use the suprep again though, it was much too harsh on my system.
