MoviPrep

Your doctor may recommend this bowel preparation for various abdominal or rectal surgeries.  He will provide you with a prescription for this at his office or it may be called into your local pharmacy. 

The day before your scheduled surgery, you must drink CLEAR LIQUIDS ONLY.  For Dr. Marx, these liquids include water, soft drinks, coffee, tea, popsicles, jello, broth, or clear juices. 

DO NOT DRINK MILK OR ANY
RED OR PURPLE DRINKS

Continue to drink these up until midnight to keep yourself adequately hydrated.

Beginning at: ___2PM__ (The doctor will provide a date)

Step 1.  Mix First Dose:

Empty 1 Pouch A and l Pouch B into the disposable container. Add lukewarm drinking water to the top line of the container.  Mix to dissolve. If preferred, mix solution ahead of time and refrigerate prior to drinking.  The reconstituted solution should be used within 24 hours.

Step 2.  Drink First Dose:

The MoviePrep container is divided by 4 marks.  Every 15 minutes, drink the solution down to the next mark (approximately 8 oz.), until the full liter is consumed. Drink 16 oz. of the clear liquid of your choice.  This is a necessary step to ensure adequate hydration and an effective prep.

It is important that you prepare your body by drinking extra clear liquids before the prep to prevent dehydration.
