I have had a very good experience with this drug. There were a lot of rather large pills, but they weren't that hard to swallow. I had no side-effects at all. I drank A LOT of fluids during my prep day and I think that helped - 2 liters water, 2 liter ginger ale, 64 oz apple juice, coffee and tea. Will definitely use this product again.

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 was quite stressed with having to go through this process but after taking the pills its not so bad. Took the first 20, I broke them in half so it was easier to swallow. When I got #17 I was already going to the bathroom! lol No biggies though.No nausea or vomiting throughout the whole process and I have a sensitive stomach as I have GERD. I started the process at 2p. I went to the bathroom seve ... Show Full Comment
