Anyone do the Miralax/Gatorade/Dulcolax prep for surgery?

The prep I have to do for surgery is 64oz. of Gatorade mixed with 8.3 oz of Miralax and then take 4 dulcolax pills about an hour after I finish the drink. Did anyone do this prep? If so how long did it take you to finish going? It says I should start it at noon but I am thinking of starting earlier because I don't want to be up all night going to the bathroom.

My prep was the Dulcolax/Gatorade/Miralax stuff only I was supposed to take the Dulcolax first. I THINK I took the Dulcolax at 2 pm and was to start the Gatorade stuff at 5. I know I was done by 9:00 pm and it may have been earlier than that. I did not have to get up in the night.

I was really dreading it but it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had a light dinner the night before and light breakfast that morning, figuring that would make it easier.

Good luck to you!!

I have to do a liquid diet on the day prior to surgery and drink one bottle of the magnesim citrate. I was told to drink that at noon. My surgery is at 8am this tuesday morning. I am a little scared of the bowel cleanse but after having terrible pains today at the easter egg hunt and almost passing out. I am ready for this. I can do it. I need to be done with this pain. Good luck to you. Hope it goes smoothly.
