Preparation for Colonoscopy

WHAT TO DO IN ADVANCE?

 

WHAT PREPARATION IS REQUIRED?

For the best possible examination, the colon must be completely free of solid material.  Follow these preparation directions, NOT the directions on the package of Klean Prep or from some other clinic, pharmacy, etc.

PREPARATION:

 Appointment time

For a MORNING APPOINTMENT:

  On the day before the test, take 4 Dulcolax tablets at 5:00 p.m. and another 4 Dulcolax tablets at 7:00 p.m. (eight tablets in total). Also between 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. take all 4 liters of Klean Prep or substitute. You should continue other clear fluids.

For an AFTERNOON or evening APPOINTMENT:

 On the day before the test take 4 Dulcolax tablets at 6:00 pm. On the day of the test take 4 Dulcolax tablets and start Klean-Prep 7 hours before your procedure time. Finish all four (4) litres of Klean-Prep 3 hours before your procedure.
