1. Is there any way that I can make this taste any better?
You can try sucking on hard candy. You can rinse your mouth with water or a mouthwash. Do not eat or drink anything while you are drinking this solution. 2. Why avoid red liquids? The red color can persist in the colon and potentially look like blood. 3. One of the medications I was instructed to take the morning of my procedure is red, can I take it? Medications for blood pressure, heart conditions, and seizures should be taken the morning of your exam regardless of the color. 4. I feel like vomiting and don’t think I can drink any more. What should I do? It is important that you continue drinking the solution if at all possible. Without a clean bowel, the doctor will not be able to see the inside of your colon to complete the examination. If you do vomit, wait 45 minutes, and begin drinking the solution again. If not improved, call us (have a phone number of a pharmacy that is open, in case we need to call in a prescription) 5. I drank a lot of the solution and haven’t gone to the bathroom yet. What should I do? Keep drinking. Most people have a bowel movement after an hour; some patients may take 2 hours or longer. 6. I am taking the prep and am now having loose, watery stools. Do I still need the rest of the prep? Yes, you may have solid stool higher in the colon that needs to be eliminated. 7. I already have diarrhea before taking the prep, do I still have to take the laxative? Yes, you must take the prep as directed by your doctor. Your colon is approximately 6 feet long. The entire colon must be emptied for your physician to see the colon clearly. 8. I see yellow color in the toilet bowl and a few flecks. What do I do? If you have drank the entire solution or if your last bowel movements were clear enough that you were able to see the bottom of the toilet, you should be fine. It is OK if you may have some flecks of material. The yellow color is a result of bile that normally colors the feces. This shouldn’t interfere with the examination. 9. My bottom is so sore. What can I do? To clean the area, avoid rubbing, gently pat with a wet washcloth. Apply Vaseline™, Preparation H™, or Desitin liberally. 10. Can I drink alcoholic beverages? We strongly suggest you do not drink any alcoholic beverages prior to your procedure since they can cause dehydration and some wines may thin your blood. 11. Can I drink any nutritional supplements? You may drink Ensure (chocolate or vanilla) or Slim-Fast with Soy Protein/Lactose Free. These drinks are water based, not milk based. 12. Can I chew gum or suck candy? Yes, but nothing with soft centers or red color. 13. What if I am still passing stool the morning of my test? Take a tap water enema until you run clear. If this does not work, call the office. Yes, your may wear you dentures to the endoscopy suite. However, you may be asked to remove them prior to the procedure. 16. I have been instructed not to take anti-inflammatory or blood thinners several days before the procedure. What can I take for headaches and pain relief? You may take Tylenol as directed. Aspirin 81 mg can be taken. If higher dose should be stopped. You can only have the broth. No noodles, chicken, or vegetables allowed. 18. Can I have the colonoscopy done if I am on my menstrual period? Yes, the procedure can still be performed. We ask that you use a tampon if possible (not absolutely necessary).
