    This is my 5th colonoscopy and I hve thought each time that I could make a fortune by making this Trlyte taste better but you are not supposed to add anything major to it. This time I discovered a white juice made by Welch's (mango peach) that I take a few gulps after the Trilyte and the taste disappears instantly. Probably not as much fun as bourbon but you'll be amazed with the effect.

    I just had my first colonoscopy. I took 2 Dulcolax tablets which didn't seem to do much. At 6 p.m. I started drinking the Trilyte and drank a 12 oz glass every 15 minutes. The first two were not too bad, I had used the lemon flavor packet but it really didn't have much of a lemon naste. Not sure how I would describe the taste other than kind of chemically. The more glasses I drank the wors ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking Trilyte at 5pm for a Colonoscopy at 10am the next day. Mine did not come with flavor packs, but I had seen other reviews about mixing it with Crystal Lite so that's what I did. I took one Crystal Lite Natural Lemonade flavor 3.2 oz powder packet (usually makes 12 quarts) and poured it in with the Trilyte powder, then mixed with water. It made the drink taste just fine.

    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. I did not get sick drinking it. My 10 Recommendations: 1.Play some good music like "I hold on" by Dirks Bentley or "I am Woman" by Helen Reddy. 2. Drink it cold and fast. 3. Mark off ...

    Pharmacist said it could not be mixed with anything. Nauseating "taste" and had a very difficult time drinking all 4 liters of TriLyte. Finished all of the solution, but never got the full clearing of the bowel I had experienced with prep solutions used for five previous colonoscopy preps. Had a great deal of gag reflex on this, as well.
