I started Golytely at 6PM. I drank 8 ozs every 15 minutes for the first hour. It started working within 30 minutes. I was feeling very full after the first hour so I started drinking 8 ozs every 30 minutes until I had finished 10 glasses by 10:00PM. This medication worked very well for me.

This is a necessary evil in preparing for a colonoscopy. I was diagnosed with colon cancer last year and believe me this medication is NOTHING compared to chemotherapy. Yes its horrible but compared to the alternative of more surgery and more chemotherapy......I will glady drink this once a year.

This product is VILE! Unlike the explanation given on this site, liquid stools began in less than 10 minutes from first inbibing this foul liquid. It continued regularly as quickly as I could ingest it. Supposedly it is possible that one will eventually see "clear" stools. My own experience was painful in the abdomen, and severely orangey yellow liquid. YUCK!!!
