Colonoscopy Preparation Preparation for colonoscopy is considered to be the most difficult part of the examination. A good or excellent prep allows the colon to be diligently examined. A suboptimal prep may lead to missing important findings, such as polyps.

The prep instructions are your step-by-step guide. There are many different preps on the market and the choice is often a matter of personal preference. The traditional one gallon Nulytely prep remains the prep of choice in people who tend toward constipation because it almost always leads to excellent results. MoviPrep, SUPrep, and CLENPIQ are comparable in terms of safety and effectness with lower volume of prep solution to drink. OsmoPrep may be appropriate in some cases but should be used with caution because it has caused kidney damage in a small number of patients and is not as effective as the other preps.
