I know it says to drink clear liquids, but in my lightheaded daze, I picked up unfiltered apple juice. I drank about a cup of it before I realized. I called my doctor and he said to "Do the best you can, and we'll see if we can see anything tomorrow." I'm confused. I don't want to continue with this awful prep if they aren't going to be able to see anything. HELP!!

One glass of apple juice isn't going to do much harm. Trust me, by the time you are done with this prep there isn't going to be much left of anything! I did the Osmo prep in my last scope and even though they taste like a salt lick, I much prefer it over Phososoda.

i couldn't finish the prep! i was too close to throwing up so my doctor told me to drink 2 bottles of magnesium citrate instead. i'm afraid with these 2 things, i may not get accurate results. it might've been more like 2 cups of apple juice.

I thought apple juice was acceptable on a clear liquid diet...?
