Prepping before your colonoscopy

is important!

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

1 Week Prior to Procedure: Speak to your primary care physician about medications such as:
• Coumadin (Warfarin), Plavix, Ticlid, Pradaxa, Eliquis, or any other Blood Thinners*

• You may need to discontinue these medications up to 1 week prior to your procedure.

• You may continue to take a daily aspirin.

STEP 1: Begin a  low fiber (no fruits, nuts, or vegetables) diet three days before your procedure.  Continue this diet until the day before your procedure.

Step 2: The day before your procedure, begin clear liquid diet at 7:00am. NO SOLID FOODS. Please take all routine medications as normal, unless otherwise directed by your primary care provider.

Step 3:  At 2:00pm the day before your procedure you will take ALL 4 Dulcolax (bisacodyl) tablets orally.

Step 4: At 4:00pm, no later than 6:00pm, the day before your procedure you will mix half the bottle of MiraLax (7 capfuls) with 64oz of Powerade/ Gatorade/G2 (low sugar Gatorade).  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, five hours before your appointment time you will repeat step 4 and continue to drink clear liquids until 3 hours prior to your procedure.

*Be sure your MiraLax or other prep is finished three hours before your procedure.  Do not drink any liquids 3 hours prior to your procedure.    

Step 6: Check in time is 30 mins before your scheduled time on your procedure day. 

*Please familiarize yourself with our procedure instructions a week before your procedure in order to ensure the best results.
