I usually take Picolax plus the yummy addition of 10 senna tablets. Haven't had this one

I had the Picolax last time which was 2-3 years ago, I couldn't have the Moviprep last time because I was only 16 and it says on the packet that do not take if you re under 18, now that I'm 19 I have no choice but to drink the Moviprep shame because I like the Picolax

Ugh, there looks like more to drink with this one. I did have something different one time which required loads of drinking and struggled. I wonder if this calmer on your stomach?

Yeah I think it is going to be to much for me to handle but they won't let me have anything else because I rang them earlier today and they said that my doctor said I have to have the Moviprep because the last time the Picolax didn't empty my bowels very well .

Do you recall if you took the Picolax correctly last time? If you didn't then maybe you can convince them.

I did take the Picolax properly, it just didn't do the job properly-that's what they said when I woke up

I have just checked those for my hospital and the prep always starts with senna. I find I end with clear stool by the end of it but then I have terrible diarrhoea normally and have to take codeine to prevent incontinence and have to stop it 3 days before. Basically from the day I stop meds until the day of my colonoscopy I am on the toilet and end up counting hours down because I can't sleep. It is is important that your bowel is clear, I had an enema for a sigmoidoscopy which didn't work so will have to have another scope ugh.
