So I'm prepping today & I filled the rx for Moviprep but I also have a Fleet phosphosoda here. I've done both, the last 2 were Fleets, & to me, SO much better & eaiser than the larger preps. (I only drink 1 bottle of Fleet & have been completely cleaned out)
 
I know it's been recalled & the risks but would you feel comfortable still doing the Fleet? One last time?... :)

I didn't know the phosphosoda was recalled...I used it for my colonoscopy last year so I'm assuming something happened since then. I would prefer that over a large bottle of anything else.

Ah, okay so I read again and found the recall information, but people are being advised not to take ANY over the counter laxatives for colonoscopy preps and that the prescribed ones are to have black box warnings for kidney damage. I'm not really sure what we're supposed to do besides quit eating for a while...which happens to a lot of us anyway, but the rest of the world?
