Q

What can I do if colonoscopy prep is not working?

I started my prep for my colonoscopy this morning at 10 (4 ducolax pills,). I drank the miralax solution at lunch time and finished by 2 PM. It is now later and I am just having intense cramps, but not any bowel movements. Is something wrong?

You should call your doctor and discuss this.

Different people need different amounts of bowel preparation solution – also it sounds like you took the laxative too soon before starting the prep.
