COLOCAP BALANCE PREPARATION - PATIENT INFORMATION.
The success of your examination depends on the bowel being as clear as possible, otherwise the examination may

Taking the capsules
You will need to take all 65 capsules
• Swallow the first 5 capsules. Although the capsules can be taken one at a time, they are most easily swallowed as a handful of 5 capsules. You should “wash down” these capsules (and each lot of 5) by drinking a glass – at least 250ml-of clear, non alcoholic liquid from the *Approved Clear Fluids list. • Take another 5 capsules EVERY 15 MINUTES with at least 250ml more to drink until 45 capsules have been taken (your last lot of 5 should be taken at 6.30pm) • You should continue to drink clear non-alcoholic fluids from the *Approved Clear Fluids list overnight.
On the day of your colonoscopy
• Take another 5 capsules every 15 minutes with at least 250ml more to drink until the remaining 20 capsules have been taken (your last lot of 5 should be taken at 7.30am). Continue drinking water up to 4 hours prior to admission time.
A vital part of this preparation is the fluid that you drink. Not only does this prevent dehydration, it
forms an important part of the bowel cleansing process. You must maintain adequate fluid intake at a
rate of approximately 250ml of liquid for every 5 capsules (2.5-3 litres in all).
If you do not maintain adequate fluid intake, serious dehydration and/or electrolyte disturbances may
occur in some at risk patients.
If you are having any difficulty with the bowel preparation or if you have any questions regarding your
colonoscopy, please phone the office on 9790 0188 (Business hours).
