The latest answer to the palatability problem is Visicol and OsmoPrep — oral sodium phosphate in tablet form. The tablets are taken four at a time, every 15.

Magnesium citrate may be used alone. Either laxative may be used with lower-volume (2 liters) PEG. Both laxatives may be used in combination with a restricted diet.

To make a bad-tasting liquid prep like PEG easier to swallow, try one or more of the following: if the PEG doesn't come flavored, add some Crystal Light or Kool-Aid powder (again, not red, blue, or purple); add some ginger or lime; drink it chilled; drink it through a straw placed far back on your tongue; hold your nose and drink it as quickly as possible; quickly suck on a lemon slice after you finish each glass; hold a lemon or lime under your nose while you drink; suck on a hard candy after each glass.

But take nothing with red, blue, or purple dye.

osmoprep (sodium phosphate monobasic monohydrate and sodium phosphate dibasic I have Crohn's desease and so must have a colonoscopy fairly often. The recommended dossage: 20 Osmoprep tablets(4 tablets every 15 minutes.

The Osmoprep medication is expensive. And because of my insurance I paid 25 dollars. Started the process on the day before the procedure at 3 pm and ended around 12 midnight. This is very important. In both cases, I did drink about 1.5 gallons of ice tea to stay hydrated, starting in the morning of the day before the procedure. and ice tea tastes better than water or any other prep concoction. In contrast, the last time I used a Fleet product at a cost of about 5 dollars.

Renal risks of sodium phosphate tablets for colonoscopy preparation

Renal risks of sodium phosphate tablets for colonoscopy preparation: a review of adverse drug reactions reported to the US Food and Drug Administration.

Renal adverse drug reactions from sodium phosphate tablets are more common in women with a mean body weight lower than the national average weight.

Our aim was to analyse renal risks of the sodium phosphate tablets. Although Fleet's Phospho-Soda has been removed from the US market, sodium phosphate tablets sold as OsmoPrep and Visicol remain available. Sodium-phosphate-containing colonoscopy preparations cause renal failure by the development of calcium phosphate nephropathy.
