Why Split Prep?

Split Dose Prep is rapidly becoming the standard of care. Taking your prep this way reduces your risk of missing polyps and cancer mainly in the right colon!

See below:

Split-dose regimens have been shown to improve bowel preparation and patient comfort compared to conventional bowel cleansing. The split-dose method involves taking half of the prep solution the evening before the colonoscopy and the remainder of the solution on the morning of the procedure. In one study, patients who did the split-dose preparation were much more likely to receive an “excellent” rating by their gastroenterologist than patients taking the entire dose the night before.

The critical aspect of split-dosing is that the second dose must be taken less than 6 hours before the examination. This may mean that some patients must get up at 2:00 a.m. or 3:00 a.m. for an early morning appointment. While this may seem unappealing to many patients, surveys found that patients were willing to wake up early if they knew that the split-dose method would improve their outcome. Fewer patients doing the split-dose method found it difficult to finish their solution than patients who consumed all the solution the night before.
