Sorry to bring up the dreaded Colonoscopy subject again (thanks for all the kind wishes and cheery responses) but today is the day before my colonoscopy so had to start on the Picolax this morning.
1st sachet mixed with 1 pint water started at 9.30 and finished drinking at 10.15 am. Instructions said to sip it over 30 - 40 mins.
Its now 11.55 and so far only needed to go for wee wee's.
Has anyone used Picolax for their prep....if so how long does it take before it starts to 'work'?
I'm sure it started a lot sooner than this last time I used it (6 years ago) but I can't remember exactly as I was in hospital overnight.
I did have to use a dulcolax tablet as well this time (took that Saturday night and went to the loo 7 times yesterday). It was fine, only bit of griping in tummy but no sore bum with it and very gentle.
Now I'm worrying that the Picolax not working. It said on packet ' if it becomes too hot, wait until it cools sufficiently to drink'. Well it didn't get hot at all and it was quite hard to get the little grains to dissolve. I do remember the last time I took it it did get hot. The pack is in date but it was given to me last October.
I do hope I'm not wasting my time
