Started drinking TryLyte solution at 7:30 am for a 2:00 pm Colonoscopy procedure. Drank it lemon flavored and finished it at 10:00 am. 11 visits to the bathroom and I'm almost clear.

Pharmacist said it could not be mixed with anything. Nauseating "taste" and had a very difficult time drinking all 4 liters of TriLyte.

Had a great deal of gag reflex on this, as well.

Comment:
I have been using TriLyte for the past day and a half to clear my colon because it is impacted. If you mix 8 oz. of the TriLyte with 8 oz. of cranberry juice or cran-grape juice it actually tastes pretty good. My doctor told me to mix half juice and half of TriLyte. I did not add the flavor packets, though. I thought it would taste worse with two flavors combatting each other. I am only on th ... Show Full Comment
