URGENT: Colonoscopy Prep Help!

Hi!
I have taken my first litre of Moviprep, I finished it about an hour and 40minutes ago and I have only has one small fairly normal bowel movement.
Is this normal?
How long does it take to go through the system? I am a bit concerned...
I have suffered from awful constipation, going up to 4/5 days with no BM due to swelling of the tail end due to a perianal flare, could this be the problem?

HELP!

My last prep was Fleet and it took 6 hours for me to have my first 'movement'!

Be patient, it will work

Ah phew!
Thanks so much!
It was only from what I remember of last time it was pretty quick. but that is a relief.
Not looking forward to adding to my swollen stomach in an hour and half, with the next litre.

I haven't done that prep but believe me you will be cleaning out real soon. Just follow the directions and drink plenty of fluids. I usually spend a lot of the night before in the bathroom.

I liked Mirlax with Gatoraide myself. I feel cheated if I had to do that prep.
