First bottle of Miralax? Are there more than one?? Gross! LOL

I have to go in for a colonoscopy next month and I have to take 4 Dulcolax tabs the afternoon before the procedure and after the Dulcolax a middle sized bottle of Miralax disolved in half a gallon of water and that's it.

Enjoy your Miralax cocktail and put a little drink umbrella in it! LOL

Some docs really overkill with the prepping, I'll bet you'll be cleaned out after the first bottle and 6 pills and the second bottle won't even be necessary...be sure to follow with plenty of water though, it always helps with flushing things out and dehydration as well.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
