Don't sweat the prep - A clean colon gives your gastroenterologist greater visibility; your doctor will give you colonoscopy prep instructions. Don't worry, you've got this!


How do I prepare for a colonoscopy?

A: Preparing for your colonoscopy generally is a two-step process that involves drinking a liquid that cleans the intestines. Usually, you'll drink one portion the evening before your procedure and one portion the morning of your procedure. Properly preparing is the single most important thing you can do for a successful test.

Is there anything I can do to make the prep taste better?

A: Yes. You can mix it with a flavoring agent that's light in color (such as Crystal Light, Gatorade or Sprite). Some people also prefer to drink it chilled and/or through a straw.

Will I be sedated?

A: Yes. An anesthesiologist or certified registered nurse anesthetist administers the sedation through an IV before the test begins. You'll be asleep and comfortable for the procedure and won't experience any pain. You’ll wake up in the recovery room and although you may remember getting an IV, you won’t remember the test. You'll have an opportunity to speak to your physician before the sedation begins.
