I have a new colostomy and must have a colonoscopy that goes to it and my bottom. Other ostomates have said they had a good experience with Miralax as a prep. Has anyone used both Miralax and Prepokik and can you tell me which was easier? Would the result be different for someone with a stoma? Please share your experience and opinions. I am SO nervous. Thank you.

Hi Annie,

While I don't have personal experience with these preps, I did want to see if I could help by linking you to the largest discussion thread taking place here with 267 comments that provide patient feedback on Prepokik.

Source: Prepopik Discussion Thread

Perhaps posting your inquiry there would attract the type of responses you're looking for...

Additionally, if you run a search here on MedsChat for "Miralax", there are other patients that describe their experience with it as well.

Overall, I still think each individual is subject to react/respond differently to either treatment. And because of that, your best bet may be to ask your doctor for a sample of each one in order to determine which product is right for you.
