Available by prescription only, MoviPrep® (polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution) is a type of laxative used to empty the bowels before a colonoscopy. This medicine works by drawing water into the colon, which softens the stool and causes watery bowel movements.
MoviPrep is available as a powder, which 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. You may not be able to safely use this laxative if you have certain medical issues, such as an electrolyte imbalance or a bowel obstruction.
