Hi, just wondering if anyone here has taken Picolax before? It's used for bowel prep for colonoscopies but I have to take it as I have an impacted bowel. Does anyone know how long the effects of one sachet takes? Thanks.
Picolax tips?: Hi, just wondering if anyone here... - IBS Network
Hi, yes I have taken picolax before you just follow the directions on packet after you have taken it, it takes within an hour to start working as everything in your bowel turns to liquid (watery) make sure you're close to a toilet regardless of your condition (impacted bowel) it should still work for you give it a try only if the doctor says if it's ok to do so. So make sure you see your doctor.
I say this because I don't know if you're on any medications that is why I say see your doctor first. Picolax works wonders not that I've had bowel impact although in the past I've had close to a bowel impact though once in awhile I do get these problems. So best of luck to you let us know how it all goes for you.
Thanks very much. I had a good clear out last night and I think I'm over the worst if it now. I have a colonoscopy coming up in a few months and I'll gave to take it again then! I'm worried that I'll still be needing to go to the toilet on the way to the hospital because the picolax has taken so long to wear off!
