took the medication as directed in preparation for colonoscopy. First dose yesterday at 7-8 PM, second dose between 3-4 AM this morning. NO movements at all before leaving for appointment at 7:15, did not have a movement until after 8:30! The prep was easy to use, except for getting up in the middle of the night for the second dose. It is now 4:30 PM and I am still gassy and having fluid stool ... Show Full Comment

Definitely drink cold. I tried using a straw and it just made it harder to swallow. Best method for me was to take a deep breath, drink a big gulp of it and after swallowing exhale to get the smell out of your mouth. Not a great experience but not the worst thing I've had to go through. Good luck.

I took this prep as instructed, went in for the colonoscopy and after completion I was told that the bowl prep was poor as there was some liquified as well as solid stool remaining and the test would have to be taken again at a later date and with 2 days of prep. I'm going to try to get a refund of my $69.00 as the product didn't do the job.

Comment:
Was not expecting to have any effects from this prep other than emptying my bowels. On that score, it was excellent. There was no pain or discomfort and it evacuated my bowel completely. However, I found the prep difficult to take. My lips burned-very salty. I was only able to ingest about 75% of each portion due to gagging and nausea. My systolic blood pressure was up to 200 after completin ... Show Full Comment
