So far so good. Just started the prep. My instructions were to take the first doses at 3, and the final doses at 6. they said I could start earlier so I started at 2....I am hoping to be done and able to sleep fairly well. The comments here have been so helpful, thanks.

I started the process at 2p. I went to the bathroom seve ... Show Full Comment

A little hard swallowing pills but one at a time is not too bad. I took meds at 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. - the only downside is that I did not stop going to the bathroom all night. Literally all night. No cramps, pain, nausea, headache just bathroom all night long. Almost didnt make it to bathroom at two in morning after second dose. But doc said good job - clean colon.

The first evening, about 2 hours after taking the last dose, I vomite ... Show Full Comment

This time I took 4 tablets with a cup (8 oz) or water every 15 minutes for an hour in the evening and then again in the morning prior to my procedure. The pills were mostly tasteless and easy to swallow one at a time. It too ... Show Full Comment
