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.

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.

I started at at 4pm, I had to drink 3 liters before it started working at 10pm. I found the best way to drink it was adding 1/2 packet of sugar free wylers lemonaide mix to each 8 ounce glass. It was really lemony but covered up the awful taste of Trilyte. I was able to finish it only because I added the lemonaide mix. I was in the bathroom pretty much non stop from 10pm to 4am.

Comment:
I call it the "radiator flush". I have no problem guzzling it down - probably since this is like my 8th colonoscopy (I have Ulcerative Colitis). The latest batch is pre-flavored with lemon-lime. Not too bad. I DO FEEL for those of you who are new at this: the concoction is pretty nasty.
