Moviprep is a lemon flavoured laxative contained in four sachets.

There are two large sachets (‘Sachet A’) and two small sachets (‘Sachet B’). You need all these for one treatment.

You are taking Moviprep to make your bowels clean so that they are ready for examination.

Moviprep works by emptying the contents of your bowels, so you should expect to have watery bowel movements.


Always take Moviprep exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The usual dose is 2 litres of solution, which is made up as follows: This pack contains 2 clear bags each containing one pair of sachets: Sachet A and Sachet B. Each pair of sachets (A and B) is to be dissolved in one litre of water This pack is therefore sufficient to make up 2 litres of MOVIPREP solution. Before you take MOVIPREP, please read carefully the following instructions.

How to drink Moviprep Drink the first litre of the MOVIPREP solution over one to two hours. Try to drink a glassful every 10-15 minutes. When you are ready, make up and drink the second litre of MOVIPREP solution made up with the contents of the sachets A and B from the remaining bag. During the course of this treatment, you are recommended to drink a further one litre of clear liquid to prevent you feeling very thirsty and becoming dehydrated. Water, clear soup, fruit juice (without pulp), soft drinks, tea or coffee (without milk) are all suitable. These drinks can be taken at any time you choose.
