MoviPrep Dosage

MoviPrep Evening-Only Regimen for Bowel Preparation

With the MoviPrep evening-only regimen, the full two-liter dosage of MoviPrep is consumed the night before your colonoscopy. The recommended MoviPrep dosage for the evening-only regimen is as follows:
 
  • Around 6:00 p.m. the evening before your colonoscopy, prepare one liter of MoviPrep solution by mixing the contents of one pouch A and one pouch B with one liter of lukewarm water. You may use a suitable glass container or the container provided with your MoviPrep medication.
 
  • Drink eight ounces (240 mL) of the solution over one hour (one eight-ounce portion every 15 minutes).
 
  • About 1.5 hours later, repeat the directions above to take the second liter of MoviPrep solution.
 
  • After finishing the MoviPrep, drink one liter (32 ounces) of clear fluids.
 

General Information on Taking MoviPrep

Some considerations for people taking MoviPrep include the following:
 
  • This medication comes as a powder, which should be dissolved in lukewarm water before using.
 
  • MoviPrep is taken either the night before a colonoscopy or split up between the night before and the morning of the procedure. Your healthcare provider will tell you which dosing regimen you should follow.
 
  • Do not add any additional ingredients, including flavorings or other liquids, to the MoviPrep solution.
 
  • It is important to stay hydrated while using MoviPrep. Drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after taking this medication.
 
  • You should finish your evening meal at least one hour before starting MoviPrep. Normally, this evening meal should be limited to clear soup and/or plain yogurt. Avoid eating solid foods while using MoviPrep, until after your colonoscopy procedure.
 
  • MoviPrep comes with four pouches and one mixing container. To prepare the solution, empty one pouch A and one pouch B into the mixing container. Add lukewarm water to the top line (one-liter line) and mix to dissolve the powder. After the first container is consumed, a second container will be prepared in the same manner.
 
  • MoviPrep can be refrigerated before drinking. It may taste better if chilled.
 
  • It normally takes about one hour after starting MoviPrep to have your first bowel movement.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
