how to use CLENPIQ

CLENPIQ is the first ready-to-drink low volume bowel cleansing agent.

CLENPIQ can be used alone or in conjunction with over the counter laxatives like bisacodyl or magnesium citrate. If an over the counter laxative is also recommended by your physician, it is usually used about 1 hour before the bowel cleansing agent. There are 2 main ways to take your bowel cleansing agent: the day before regimen or the split dose regimen.
