Twice before I hated it - no dreaded it. Today I realized it's not the product but delivery method most often prescribed. I used it 2x prior in the USA and they give you a gallon size plastic jug to fill and refrigerate. In the Dominican Republic I got 4 packs and was told to mix each in a liter of water (about 32 oz) I used glass bottles I picked up at IKEA and placed them in a very cold f ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This product was very effective for the treatment for which it was provided but I feel this is a very poisonous product and i will noever use it again. I experienced an episode of A fib after the first night of a 2 night prep and another 2 days after the colonoscopy. During these four days I also experienced 4 migraines. Following the proceedure my diarrhea increased for 2 months and I was very ... Show Full Comment

I'm a 58 YOF, 190 lbs, going for my 2nd colonoscopy.

Ate very lightly Monday, then clear liquids Tuesday. Mixed Nulytely with regular powdered Countrytime Lemonade mix, since I detest the taste of artificial sweeteners and Gatorade. The ...

Comment:
I am a 44 year old female and this is my 4th time using the prep. before a colonoscopy. The taste is extremely unappealing. I question why each person regardless of size is encouraged to drink the entire gallon of nulytely. I have never been able to finish the gallon, and I make myself miserable in trying to do so. I would rather my doctor be very frank in telling me what to look for to know w ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The doctor prescribed Nulytely in preparation for my colonoscopy because that is what my insurance would cover. When you add water it's a 4 liter jug but I only had to drink 1 liter to get a clear, liquid bowel movement. My advice is to go to the bathroom in the morning so most of what you have in your colon is gone when you start drinking. The taste is horrible, it was very difficult to keep ... Show Full Comment
