MoviPrep is a prescription medicine used by adults 18 years and older to clean the colon before a colonoscopy. MoviPrep cleans your colon by causing you to have diarrhea.
Since MoviPrep contains sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid, MoviPrep should be used with caution in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency, especially G-6-PD deficiency patients with an active infection, with a history of hemolysis, or taking concomitant medications known to precipitate hemolytic reactions.
