Topic: MoviPrep for colonoscopy
I am having a colonoscopy this coming Friday and have been given a prescription for MoviPrep, a laxative to empty the colon of fecal waste. I was surprised to see that the preparation contains a "maximum of 2.33mg of phenylalanine per treatment". Is this the same as Nutrasweet?
I avoid Nutrasweet like the plague, and am not sure if I want to take this preparation. Do all the laxatives before colonoscopy contain an artificial sweetener?
Do I have any other alternative?
Thanks for your help!
