Comment:
just taking sips made me dry heave. I find its easier to tolerate with motts apple flavored powder and pouring half a cup and adding a half of real apple juice and adding ice and drinking through straw quickly and waiting a bit before another gulp or two some I didn't start dry heaving again. Tastes like plastic and chemically soap flavor even with the apple flavoring.

The first liter I vomited just after getting it down. I was only able to get down 20 oz of the second liter. After continually trying to drink the rest, I have vomited again. This stuff is horrible. Once I am finished with the test, I will never use this stuff again.

The prep was effective but I found it to have a horrible chemical taste. It made it hard to stomach! I work at a GI clinic and have had a colonoscopy before. My last prep was much better!
