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 doctor will provide you with the date.
The morning before your surgery, begin a CLEAR LIQUID DIET. You will be on this diet the entire day. For Dr. Marx, these liquids include water, soft drinks, coffee, tea, popsicles, jello, broth, or clear juices.

At 2:00pm, take 4 Osmoprep tablets every 15 minutes with at least 8 ounces of any clear liquid until all 20 tablets have been consumed.
AT 8:00pm, take 4 Osmoprep tablets every 15 minutes with at least 8 ounces of any clear liquid until the remaining 12 tablets have been consumed.
Stay hydrated by drinking all required clear liquids during the prep
