    It is not a satisfying experience, but man does it WORK. It tastes awful but it is a little better with crystal light lemon. It caused some nausea but I powered through it. Other than that, it wasn't THAT bad... tiring though.

    I had to drink this for a Colonoscopy. I was given the unflavored version by the Dept. VA. Yes it tastes like salty plastic flavored water. Just do it and stop complaining. Once every 10 years for solid piece of mind of knowing you don't have Colon Cancer or Ulcerative colitis is worth the bad taste. As we say in the Military "suck it up buttercup, carry on!"

    I read up on the colyte and was extremely nervous about doing this prep. The taste of it was not nearly as bad as I was expecting. I was easily able to drink down a cup every 10 minutes till the 4 litres was done. It had the desired effect of bowel emptying but caused basically no discomfort. Don't panic if you have to do this it is really not that bad just makes you go.

    I have had 3 prior colonoscopies. This is the first for Colyte which was very difficult to stomach! I did very well with the prior preps used with Gatorade and was told it was physician preference. Ask for another option. If I had known how bad Colyte would be to get it down, I would have discussed with my doctor before hand. I do not recommend.
