Serenity: Ya it does sound like a two-part prep. But part one is quite early, starting two night before the scope. I guess my question was about the one early bottle of magnesium citrate, when it takes effect and how long it lasts. Will a slow responder get any sleep after drinking the stuff at 6pm? I agree that a 5-day diet change makes sense and I have done that, but it was never part of the written instructions.
Quincy: They are all torture! I used to insist on the gallon but after a bad experience switched to Miralax. The original Miralax procedure included some inconsistencies so I wrote my own, a rather long document that I thought would work for me.
The best advice from this forum is to realize that the goal is not just to follow instructions to the minute but to get cleaned out. I need extra time. Miralax can be dissolved in water and Gatorade taken as a side dish. A relative in San Diego sent a copy of a prep that includes thing like eggs, chicken and cheese the day before. Ideas are all over the place. Whatever works.
