    This is my 4th colonoscopy and drinking this stuff gets worse the older I get. There MUST be a better way. Nauseous, headachy and half a bottle to go. Oh, I think the yellow stuff coming out at the end is bile.

    I had my first colonoscopy scheduled last Thursday. It had to be rescheduled because the product just didn't work.

    Started prep about noon and only have 3/4 down came down with a full on migraine. Can't finish the rest have to be at procedure at 7:30 am and it's an hour drive hopefully it's good enough . Taste isn't to bad but it's texture and amount is horrible. Medicine should be able to come up with something better.
