how to prep for your colonoscopy

 

Prepping before your colonoscopy is important! 

We want a clean colon! In order to do that we ask that you follow a few of our steps. 

STEP 1: You will start your low residue diet. This will start three days before your procedure and you will continue to do this up until the day before your procedure. 

Step 2: The day before your visit you will start your clear liquids diet at 7:00am. 

Step 3:  At 2:00pm the day before your procedure you will take all 4 of your Dulcolax tablets. 

Step 4: Starting at 4:00pm the day before your procedure you will mix half the bottle of MiraLax (6-7 capfuls) with 64oz of Powerade/ Gatorade. Then drink one glass every 10-15 mins until mixture is finished. (Should take about 2 hours or as quickly as tolerated). 

Step 5: The day of the procedure you will repeat step 4 five hours before your scheduled appointment time.   

*Make sure your MiraLax mixture is completely finished three hours before you come in.        

Step 6: Check in time is 30 mins before your scheduled time on your procedure day. Make sure you give us enough time to get you ready!
