Powder for preparation of oral solution Moviprep

Moviprep is a laxative.

Release form and composition

Dosage form Moviprep - powder for preparation of a solution for oral administration: sachet A - from white to yellow, with a pleasant lemon scent; sachet B - from white to light brown (111.896 g of powder in sachet A and 10.6 g of powder in sachet B, in a plastic bag 1 sachet A and 1 sachet B, in a cardboard box 2 bags).

Composition of 1 sachet A:

  • active substances: macrogol-3350 - 100 g, sodium sulfate - 7.5 g, sodium chloride - 2.691 g, potassium chloride - 1.015 g;
  • auxiliary components: aspartame, acesulfame potassium, lemon flavoring V3938-1 N1.

Active substances in 1 sachet B: ascorbic acid - 4.7 g, sodium ascorbate - 5.9 g.

Pharmacological properties


Taking Moviprep, like other electrolyte solutions containing macrogol, leads to mild diarrhea and rapid colon cleansing.

Macrogol-3350, sodium sulfate and ascorbic acid have an osmotic effect and cause a laxative effect.

Macrogol-3350 increases the volume of feces, thereby increasing intestinal peristalsis.

The electrolytes that are part of Moviprep, as well as additional fluid intake, protect from violations of the water-electrolyte balance.


Macrogol-3350 is practically not absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is excreted in small quantities by the kidneys. The intestines remain unchanged.

Ascorbic acid is absorbed in the small intestine by active sodium-dependent saturable transport. There is an inverse relationship between the dose taken and the percentage absorbed from the dose. When taking a dose of 30-180 mg, about 70-80% of it is absorbed, with the subsequent intake of 12 g of ascorbic acid, only 2 g is absorbed.

After ingestion of large doses of ascorbic acid (AA) and in the case of its concentration in plasma ˃ 14 mg / l, the absorbed AA is excreted unchanged by the kidneys.
