View Full Version : Picolax :(

13-10-13, 17:31
I'm having a colonoscopy on Tuesday at 10am.

I've been told to do the following:

2pm - Picolax
6pm - Picolax
9pm - Picolax
9pm - 3x Dulcolax tablets
6am Tuesday morning - Dulcolax suppository

I am SO scared. Just been reading about Picolax online and I am terrified to drink the stuff. :( I'm scared it makes me sick - and I'm home alone tomorrow - what if I need help? :weep: Honestly am going to cry...

I had a colonoscopy two weeks ago at 10:30 in the morning, I had to take picolax at 07:30am, 11:30am and again at 5:30pm. It doesn't taste too bad which surprised me and it did not affect my stomach at all, it also worked after 1/2 hour. Just make sure that you are near to the toilet as when you get the urge you have to go!!! I was also home alone but was perfectly fine, I got my laptop, my kindle, magazines, ipod, mobile phone and set up camp in my bedroom (next to the bathroom) and just chilled out all day. Good Luck - don't worry about anything x
