My son was told by his GI doctor to do a clean out due to constipation & drank the whole prep 8 hrs ago & nothing has happened at all. Should I be concerned?

I think it would be best to consult his doctor, he may be dealing with some type of instruction, if this medication didn't help. It usually doesn't take that long to work, and the FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, cramps, gas, and diarrhea.

Has there been any change?
