 1  Colonoscopy Prep Bloating, nausea, thirst, high blood pressure, headache, general discomfort. I took this for colonoscopy prep thinking it would be easy. It's easy to take, but it didn't work despite following the directions meticulously. I was loaded with the drug (which is sodium-based) for a week and miserable with headaches, high blood pressure, bloating, and generally feeling awful. Yes, it's easier, but it's terrible to wake up after the procedure and hear "we couldn't see all of your colon--you need to do this again." F 51 1 days

OSMOPREP  (SODIUM PHOSPHATE, DIBASIC ANHYDROUS; SODIUM PHOSPHATE, MONOBASIC, MONOHYDRATE):  This medication is used to clean out the intestines before a colonoscopy. Sodium phosphate is a laxative that works by drawing large amounts of water into the colon, causing you to have watery bowel movements. This cleans out the intestines so that your doctor can clearly view them during your colonoscopy. This medication should not be used for weight loss or constipation due to the possibility of severe side effects.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
