Hi. Has anyone any experience of taking Gastrografin prep for a ct colonoscopy? Any side effects? Thank you.

I’ve had this stuff twice, no side effects - it tastes of aniseed but it’s ok

Thanks for the reassurance fireandicecubes. I am taking this stuff tomorrow and I was a bit worried because I have a slight heart problem and I noticed on Google that there can be quite serious side effects but I am sure these are rare.

Add lime juice to hide the taste. How nany do you have to take.

It was one small bottle Torvean32. Half at 10.00 this morning and the rest at 6.00pm. Thanks for the tip about lime juice. The information recommended blackcurrant cordial which I tried before seeing your text.
It wasn't pleasant grin. Will try lime juice if I ever have to drink this again.smile
