Before you have a colonoscopy, your healthcare provider may prescribe MoviPrep® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution). This laxative helps empty the bowels so that a healthcare provider can clearly see any potential problems within the colon, such as ulcers or polyps.
MoviPrep works by drawing water into the colon, which softens the stool and causes watery bowel movements. It comes as a powder that is dissolved in water. It can either be taken the night before a colonoscopy or split up between the night before and the morning of the procedure. Possible side effects include nausea, thirst, and anal irritation.
