Osmoprep Description

Preparation for undergoing a colonoscopy is pretty straight forward and relatively easy, but not something anyone looks forward to. Routine colonoscopies are recommended for men and women beginning at 50 years of age and every 10 years following that until around the age of 75. This test allows doctors to examine the inner lining of your large intestine where you may have ulcers, polyps, or inflamed areas, and to spot any early signs of cancer. Ask your doctor about a prescription for Osmoprep with Sodium Phosphate and book your colonoscopy.

Getting Ready for Your Colonoscopy and How Osmoprep Works

You will start the preparation for the colonoscopy the morning before your scheduled time by only drinking clear fluids, you may be allowed a light and plain breakfast but your doctor will decide what is best for you. You’ll begin taking Osmoprep tablets the evening before your appointment. It’s important that you drink 8 ounces of Gator-Aid or other drinks that contain electrolytes with each dose you take as the diarrhea can cause you to lose a lot of fluids.

Osmoprep works by stimulating your intestines to absorb extreme amounts of fluid from your body which can quickly cause dehydration, a loss of essential electrolytes, and is not healthy for your kidneys. You should to continue taking in fluids throughout the day before the colonoscopy and in between the evening and morning dose of Osmoprep. Call your doctor or see a pharmacist if you have more questions about taking Osmoprep.

Other Conditions Treated by Osmoprep

There are other reasons your doctor may prescribe Osmoprep for you and the dosages would vary. Conditions that cause constipation, such as fecal impaction, drugs, poor diet, an illness, or surgery may require taking Osmoprep to help you pass stool comfortably. Certain surgeries that could jeopardize your recovery or a successful outcome if you are straining to have a bowel movement can benefit from taking Osmoprep pre- and post-operatively.

Before Osmoprep is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about any risks to taking Osmoprep if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Osmoprep is the best bowel preparation for you to use.

Osmoprep Precautions

Keep out of children’s reach and do not give Osmoprep to any child under 5 years of age without doctor’s consent. If your doctor has taken any biopsies during your colonoscopy, your first bowel movement after the procedure may contain small amounts of blood in it and this is normal. Should you continue with bloody stools or other worrisome side effects, call your doctor right away.
