Pre-dosing Instructions:

At least 3 days prior to the procedure, do not consume seeds or nuts due to digestive residue or fresh fruits or raw vegetables (i.e. no salads) and no multigrain bread



Adult Dosing Instructions:

Fill a mug with 150 ml (5 oz) of cold water. Empty contents of one sachet in the mug (rarely, mixture may heat up - allow to cool before drinking). Stir for 2 -3 minutes until completely dissolved. The solution should now become an off-white, cloudy liquid. Following each dose, drink 1.5 to 2 litres of a variety of clear fluids over 4 hours. DO NOT DRINK JUST WATER ALONE. You should also drink a balanced electrolyte solution. Drinking only water to replace the fluid losses may lead to electrolyte imbalance, particularly to hyponatremia and possibly seizures.
