Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy?

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

Hard to believe in this day and age, that a bowel cleansing technique has to be this barbaric. Are pills and large amounts of water too much to ask for? This stuff is nasty, gag-reflex-inducing and hard to tolerate. But it works.

Did my second dose and could barely finish it...nauseated, bloated, haven't finished my water before my midnight cutoff and it's 11 pm, and I"m exhausted from the first round and now waiting for it to start all over again. I swear, as long as I live, I will never do Suprep again!!!

Suprep sucks! My first colonoscopy is tomorrow morning, and it was difficult to swallow this nonsense. I"m already sick and bloated as it is. Then to have to drink 2 more 16 oz containers of water? I felt chills, bloated, nauseous, etc. I am DREADING the repeat procedure again in 3 hours. And I have not left the toilet! Surely, there must be a better way. No wonder folks avoid colonoscopies!

Did anyone else have to drink mag citrate before an hour before suprep doses??The mag citrate was bad eneough but then to have to follow with the suprep was horrendous.I have never had a worse prep for a test in my life...and I have had several colonoscopies. In this case my cramping was so severe the doctor was afraid my bowel perforated delaying my procedure three hours...I did not get thru second dose and was close to taking myself to the emergency department after first dose was ingested.All in all my results were definitive with advanced crhones disease...I'm certain I will not be a candidate for this prep again..the pain caused by this prep was worse than any flare up I have ever had..There has to be a better solution or at least one in the works..good luck to all!!!

When I took my Suprep I had a glass of cold apple juice next to me. I drank the Suprep through a gulp..gulp..gulp the drink some apple juice. Repeat until gone. You would think in this day and age someone could come up with a prep that is tolerable.

I am a colon cancer survivor. I have my 8th colonoscopy in the morning. ALL bowel preps are horrible. PERIOD.
The Gatorade prep by far taste the least horrible. Suprep was what I used to. It is a grape/salty tasting cup of hell.

The only way I got through it was to have a teaspoon of honey to eat the second I finished a big gulp.

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.

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.
