I am having a scope tomorrow and drank the "new" prep.  250 g of Miralaz and 64 oz of Gatorade.  I started drinking it 3 hrs ago.  Finished 6 glasses in two hours.  And nothing.  So I wait.  Do you think I need to mix up another batch?

I would only mix another batch if that was what the doc told me to do. Has it started working yet?
I feel a whole lot more the way I do now than I did a little while ago.

Sounds like you might be in for an all nighter.... just keep drinking and it should hit at some point. Did they have you take dulcolax or some other laxative last night or this morning? Last time I did a prep I did dulcolax, then miralax. It seemed to take longer for the process to start but the results were eventually as expected.

I did this prep last week, took about 2hrs and I was going to the bathroom, I was totally clear before i went to bed that night. Pretty easy prep compared to all the others. I have a hard time drinking gatoraide though!
