Suprep Overview

Laxatives (purgatives, aperients) are substances that loosen stools[1] and increase bowel movements. They are used to treat and prevent constipation. Laxatives vary based on how they work and the side effects they have. Certain stimulant, lubricant and saline laxatives are used to evacuate the colon for rectal and bowel examinations, and may be supplemented by enemas under certain circumstances. Sufficiently high doses of laxatives may cause diarrhea. Some laxatives combine more than one acti...

Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

Suprep Bowel Prep Kit

I am looking for a manufacture coupn that will help me pay for my Suprep Bowel Prep Kit. I an 70 years old and can not afford this medication. Can you help me? ## I've done some searching, but I am sorry, I didn't find anything for patient assistance. Since this is a laxative that is used to to clean out the colon in preparation for certain tests and medical procedures, it is generally a once time purchase and most manufacturers of these products don't offer assistance by way of programs or coupons, because it isn't consider life sustaining and isn't something you are going to be using regularly. There are, however, other alternatives on the market, most doctors just prefer this one, because it is new and contains no sodium phosphate. Have you tried asking your docto...

Suprep Bowel Prep
5 Replies RSS
Does $90.00 sound right for 2 bottles and one cup? ## Suprep is a bowel prep kit that works by cleaning out your bowels for medical procedures, it contains: sodium sulfate, potassium sulfate, and magnesium sulfate. And it is a name brand product that is fairly new to the market, so that price isn't surprising. Are there any other comments or questions? ## The price is out of sight, since the ingredients are inexpensive and the plastic container is also cheap. On the other hand, there are start up costs, advertising fees and regulatory costs, but still $90! There should be no shortage of patients since everybody, it seems,is having a colonoscopy done (and hating every minute of the prep) ## This is a total rip off, my friend has this done and he paid $75 for 2 bottles, and he has rea...

Suprep Bowel Prep Kit Coupon

I am looking for a coupon to help purchase the Suprep Bowel Prep Kit. I am unemployed and need this procedure done. Is there any help out there? ## Unfortunately, no there isn't. We've had several people ask, because it is expensive, but since it is considered to be a product that is only used in certain circumstances and not life-sustaining, the company offers no coupons or purchasing assistance. While this is generally the preferred product, there are others available, so the only thing I can suggest is speaking to your doctor about using an alternative. Are there any other questions or comments? ## hi, you can go to internetdrugcoupon.com they have coupons to help with the cost of the suprep. i just got one. ## Just ask your doctor's office for a sample box that they get ...

Suprep Bowel Prep Kit Coupon request

My Dr. Prescribed this prior to some procedures. I am on a fixed income and can not afford the 70$ it cost after insurance. My pharmacist suggested I request a coupon. Can you please help with this matter? ## Their website at suprepkit.com has a voucher you can print that will you give you 20% off, up to a maximum of $10. To get it you just need to visit their site and sign up on the voucher page. Learn more Suprep details here. Unfortunately, that still doesn't save you much money.

I would talk to them in person. Good luck ## I am having a Colonoscopy on Jan. 13th. 2015

First experience with Suprep
3 Replies RSS
I am having the colonoscopy tomorrow a.m. and will take my first dose of Suprep in about 10 minutes. I had the procedure done about 9 years ago, using the old prep method. Based on what I'm hearing and reading, the Suprep should be a little more tolerable. ## How did it go? Several people have asked about it, but no one has posted back yet to say whether or not they had good results from using it, as compared to the old ones. Learn more Suprep details here. ## The prep was tolerable. No vomiting, no other major problems. The only complaint is that I had to take the second dose at 1 a.m. The first dose was at 4 p.m. i got only 2 hours of good sleep. I was feverish from dehydration, so I got IV fluids right before the procedure started at 8:30 a..m. They gave me propofol and it took 2...

Manufacture coupon for Suprex, can't afford
2 Replies RSS
Really need a coupon to lower my cost to buy Suprep. Does anyone know who to get this manufacture coupon? Can't afford it but have to have it done ## Suprep is a bowel prep product, used for cleaning out the intestines before certain tests and medical procedures. And we have had others ask if there were assistance programs available for this product, but unfortunately, there aren't. The reason is more than likely due to the fact that it is not something that a person has to buy and use on a regular basis and it isn't considered to be a life sustaining and necessary medication. There are other products on the market that can be used, so I can only suggest you contact your doctor and ask for an alternative. Are there any other questions? ## you dont need the suprep. you can ge...

Can Suprep be prescribed annually just to cleanse the colon without a required colonoscopy
1 Reply RSS
Suprep tastes awful and causes some discomfort for about an hour each round, but it effectively cleans the colon. A yearly cleansing of this sort seems like it would be beneficial to colon health and getting rid of toxins. Not sure though if it is safe and if any physician would prescribe it in this way or if it is even permitted. Any medical professionals who could answer this? ## Hello, Magpie! How are you? No, they would not. There are reasons it is a prescription only product that is only intended to be used for cleansing before certain procedures. If you wish to detoxify and cleanse at other times, there are safer products you can use, many of which are available over the counter. Is there anything else I can help with?

Making The Suprep Prep Easy
6 Replies RSS
Get some banana flavored twinpop popsicles and a large straw (like for milkshakes) or use two regular straws. The straws get the Suprep past most of the taste buds. After each gulping session, take a bite of the popsicle. It will totally clear any aftertaste. I got both preps down after four gulping sessions. In about 20 minutes, the sessions on the toilet started. I just entertained myself with my Kindle and cell phone for about an hour or so. Then I had a couple more quick trips.... I asked my gastroenterologist why she did not recommend Suprep for every patient, and she said those who are regular do best with Suprep. I will not dread doing the Suprep for my next colonoscopy (which I have every five years). Also, before starting, I put my aloe moist wipes, jar of Vaseline, Kindle, and...
