Instructions

At least 3 days prior to the procedure, do not consume seeds or nuts due to digestive residue or fresh fruits or raw vegetables (i.e. no salads) and no multigrain bread



Fill a mug with 150 ml (5 oz) of cold water. Empty contents of one sachet in the mug (rarely, mixture may heat up - allow to cool before drinking). Stir for 2-3 minutes until completely dissolved. The solution should now become an off-white, cloudy liquid. Following each dose, drink 1.5 to 2 liters of a variety of clear fluids over 4 hours. DO NOT DRINK JUST WATER ALONE. You should also drink a balanced electrolyte solution. Drinking only water to replace the fluid losses may lead to electrolyte imbalance, particularly to hyponatremia and possibly seizures.

Recommended clear fluids include Gatorade, fruit juices (not red or purple), clear broth, tea or coffee (black, sweetened to taste, no milk, cream or soy), clear sodas (e.g. ginger ale), plain Jell-O (not red or purple), Popsicles (not red or purple) and water.
