Here I found the directions for a Miralax prep for pre-colonsocopy. (Note in these directions there seems to be twice the amount of Miralax than you was told to you. But maybe since you aren't having an actual colonscopy that's why your amount is less.)Here are the directions:http://health.uchc.e...ology/formc.htm
Now also we had a member here named Willie who had to have colonoscopies fairly frequently and he used the following Ducolax prep to clean out with his Doc's permission. He swore by this prep. Said it was easy.. no cramping etc..Here it is: (From this thread in our archives: http://www.ibsgroup....s...t=0&start=0
) "Take a light diet the day before and the day you start the prep...nothing extensive, just easy to digest. Then two days prior to the test you take two Dulcolax at 10PM. Next morning (1 day prior to the test) you begin a clear liquid diet and take two more Dulcolax tablets at 10AM...and then two more at 4PM..thats it. You take nothing by mouth after midnight. Then the next morning you have your colonoscopy....then end. Works like a charm everytime." So hope this helps you and good luck with your procedure.BQ
