Colonoscopy Moviprep – Morning

COLONOSCOPY INSTRUCTIONS MOVIPREP – MORNING
Procedure before 11:30am arrival

 This is the preparation instructions for the Moviprep Kit.  This kit may be purchased at any pharmacy with a prescription from a doctor.

 AVOID FRUITS AND VEGETABLES WITH PEELS OR LEAFY GREENS, INCLUDING SALAD, AS WELL AS SEEDS AND NUTS FOR 2 – 3 DAYS BEFORE THE EXAMINATION.

 DAY BEFORE EXAM:

 Eat a light breakfast before 9:00AM; something like eggs and toast would be fine.  You may only have a liquid diet from that point on.  A liquid diet includes foods such as clear broth, Jell-O, clear soda, apple/white grape juice, popsicles, or coffee or tea (served black only).  NO DAIRY PRODUCTS OR ANYTHING THAT IS PURPLE OR RED IN COLOR may be eaten during this time.

 It is important to drink PLENTY OF CLEAR FLUIDS throughout the day.

 Beginning at:  5:00 pm

Step 1:  Empty one Pouch A and B into the disposable container included with the kit.  Add lukewarm waster to the fill line of the container.  Then mix all of this together to dissolve the powder. 

*Note – You may mix this solution ahead of time so it may be refrigerated when you drink it.

 Step 2:  The Moviprep container is divided by 4 marks.  Every 15 minutes, drink the solution down to the next mark, until the full liter is complete.  Follow with at least 16 ounces of clear liquid.

 Beginning at:  8:30 pm

Repeat Steps 1 and 2.

● If you are scheduled for a morning exam, you may not have anything to eat or drink after midnight.

*Please contact our office for any additional instructions that may have been given at your appointment.  This includes how to take your medications prior to the procedure.*

 *There is always an on-call M.D. to address any questions/concerns you may have.*
