Used this for my second colonoscopy. Last one was several years ago and this was much better than the last product I used. I think people get it too cold which chills you when you drink it fast. I didn't mind the taste. Not pleasant, but not horrible. It worked well with little to no cramping and the effects passed quickly.

Soon after, my finger went numb and I became uncoordinated and began shaking uncontrollably. Then my skin became sort of purplish and blotchy looking. Then, I developed severe nausea. I finally managed to get it a ... Show Full Comment
