    I was given 32 pills to take as preparation for laparoscopy. I have had 2 colonoscopies before and was excited that I didn't have to drink the nasty liquid this time. I would totally recommend the pills over the liquid any day! I had to take 16 pills between 2 and 3 pm and then the other 16 pills between 8 and 9 pm. It was so easy. They don't taste horrible but I would recommend taking the ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine made me extremely dizzy, nauseous, fighting to not vomit, horrible feeling with headache. I drank the golitely at my last procedure and it was by far worse than these pills, but I don't think they have this process down as user friendly yet. When they remedy the nasty side effects and not having to drink until you vomit, then maybe they have a wonder drug on their hands. They ... Show Full Comment

    I was quite scared going into this entire process. I'd never done this before and all the stories I've heard of how bad the prep can be freaked me out. Honestly, It wasn't that bad at all. It worked extremely quickly for me and I didn't even need to take all the pills before I was... cleaned out. It was relatively painless and while not entirely pleasent I would say it was worth th ...

    Comment:
    I decided to take the pills as an alternative to drinking the large,horrible drink preceding a colonoscopy. Although I would agree that the pills were highly effective and easy to use, I found the side effects not worth using it. I have been nauseous, have very little appetite and severe stomach pains after several days of taking the pills. I would NEVER take them again. I would opt for a combinat ... Show Full Comment
