I have a colonoscopy in 12 hours. I took one picolax 9 hours ago,and drunk plenty of clear fluids as directed. I have not been to,the toilet to pass solids.mimhave urinated fine. Getting worried. I'm due a second sachet at 7am in 5 hours time ....... What shall,I do ? Will,is miss my appointment?

Hi. Not to worry since the first Picolax should take effect very soon and you should still take the second sachet at 7 AM. It would be highly unlikely that the cleansing will not happen but let your doctor know at 7 if you haven't had any bowel movement by then
