X-Prep Liquid, used as a radiologic bowel evacuant, was found to be more effective, better tolerated, and more readily accepted than castor oil. The efficacy of a single full dose of this peristaltic stimulant was confirmed, and a divided dose of X-Prep Liquid was practically as effective and produced less griping and cramping. This less intensive divided-dose approach appears to be appropriate, especially in aged or debilitated patients.
