I have a colonoscopy coming up this next friday, and it calls for 4 ducolax pills and a 255m of miralax. Thing is, is that I have taken over the counter laxatives before and I end up waking in the middle of the night and get crazy dizzy once the laxative takes effect. So, after one pill this happens, but I'm sopose to take 4??Has anyone had this happen to them? I wonder what causes the dizziness? Is there anything I can take or do to help prevent that from happening when I do the prep?

Bumping since it's in two days. Started my liquid diet this afternoon.

Perhaps you may have wanted to mention this to your Dr? Not much you can do about it now or later though. You must be cleaned out for a colonoscopy and the only way I know of to do that is to use a laxative. So I guess just be careful and use the walls & furniture to steady yourself.Hope your prep and procedure go well.All the best
