Your prescription for Movi-Prep has been faxed to your pharmacy. You will need to pick up your bowel prep at least two days before your scheduled procedure. Call GI Associates of NH at 603-228-1763. If your bowel prep is not available for pick up at your pharmacy.

  • If you have a tendency to be constipated or take medications that cause constipation, also purchase Milk of Magnesia to take 2 days before your scheduled colonoscopy.
  • Zinc oxide or Desitin® ointment may be used to protect your skin during the bowel preparation. Apply it before starting the bowel prep to prevent irritation to the rectal area.

TWO DAYS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • Stay on a low fiber diet. Do not eat any beans, corn, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, nuts or any food containing seeds such as poppy, sesame, or sunflower.
  • Do not eat any foods containing flax or fish oil.
  • See the low fiber diet list
  • If you tend to be constipated - take one ounce of Milk of Magnesia on this day.

ONE DAY BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • DRINK ONLY CLEAR LIQUIDS - NO DAIRY AND NO SOLID FOOD UNTIL AFTER YOUR COLONOSCOPY. You must be able to see through the liquid when held in a clear glass up to a light.
  • NO ARTIFICIALLY COLORED RED LIQUIDS OR RED JELLO.
  • See the clear liquid diet list
  • MOVI-PREP MIXING DIRECTIONS:
    Empty the contents of one pouch A and one pouch B into the container provided (1 liter container)
  • Add lukewarm water to the fill line. Do not add anything else to this solution. Chill in refrigerator.
  • Repeat mixing the second pouch A and the second pouch B into another 1 liter (quart) container to chill ahead of time or you can mix it using the same container after you drink the first solution as below.
  • AT 5:00 PM - START DRINKING THE MOVI PREP. Take 8 oz. every 15 minutes until you have finished drinking the ENTIRE FIRST LITER (ONE QUART). If you feel bloated or full, take a break but be sure to finish the container before going to bed.
  • DRINK AN ADDITIONAL 16 Ounces of CLEAR LIQUID before starting the second dose. This is very important for the Movi-Prep to work.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • DRINK THE ENTIRE 2ND LITER OF THE MOVI PREP SOLUTION. Take 8oz. every 15 minutes until the entire 2nd liter container is gone. You must finish the prep solution by 8:00 AM.
  • Be sure to drink all of the solution. Not completing the bowel prep or eating solid food may result in rescheduling your procedure. Results should be watery and without solid particles. CLEAR LIQUIDS ONLY up until 2 hours before your procedure - NO SOLID FOOD
  • If you are also having an examination of your esophagus and stomach, stop drinking liquids 4 hours before your procedures.
