Stupid Question about Colonscopy Prep - Cross-Post from EFI Board
      05/23/04 05:25 PM

I have a question for anyone who has done a colonscopy prep with either Fleet Phosphosoda or Citro-Mag.

My first question is that I noticed the Fleet container said that you can mix it with 120mL of another liquid to get it down. This is probably dumb, but does anyone know if it is a problem to mix it with more fluid than that?

My second question is regarding the citro-mag. The bottle for that says that you have to drink 1 250mL glass of water every hour for 6 hours before taking it, and for 3 hours after taking it. My concern regarding that is that I'm scheduled to take it at 6:00am (and take the Fleet at 6:00pm the night before), so I'm hoping to be sleeping from midnight-6:00am ... does anyone know if the drinking is necessary or just to avoid dehydration. Because if so, I'd just drink a whole lot before bed and leave it at that.

Sorry I'm asking so many quesitons, stupid holiday weekend here in Canada so I can't call the doc.
