Should I take MoviPrep one hour early before the prescribed time, so that I have an early bowel movement?
I have a colonoscopy booked for Tuesday and have to be at the hospital by 12pm. I will take the first dose of MoviPrep at 5 pm Monday and 2nd dose 8 am on the day of the procedure. I live a good hours drive from the hospital and am very worried the 8 am dose will still be active and I’ll probably have a bowel movement. I am seriously thinking of moving both doses 2 hours earlier to hopefully ensure bowel activity is over and done with. Has anyone else done this and is this acceptable in the sense it won't mess the procedure up. I will be very grateful for any advice. Thanks
@teos Hello, yes you can adjust the timing. I did the same before my colonoscopy. I have an early morning appointment and I am not staying up all night so I was told to take the last dose around 8 pm. Just be sure to finish the stuff at least 4 hours before your procedure.
