I am having a sigmoidoscopy and they gave me the citrate of magnesium prep. I am worried about it after what I have read when I did a search of the site. Some people said it aggravated their reflux. I asked for them to give me another prep or even if I could do the colonoscopy prep and they said no b/c they want me to use 2 fleet enemas right before my scope. Well, I have to travel for an hour to get to the clinic. I am a bit worried about this. I did the half lightly prep before with no problems. I also wonder about this prep giving me cramps. Any advice?
