    I just thought I would mention that before using Gavilyte, I read the information sheet that comes with it. In bold letters, it states that it can cause irregular heartbeats which can cause death. This scared me because I have irregular heartbeats frequently on a daily basis and even though I have had 3 colonoscopies before, I was afraid to use this after reading the warning so I put off my colono ...

    This stuff is not bad. I was really nervous about the prep based on all the reviews out there, but this stuff tastes just like a saltier version of the lemon lime Gatorade. For the full gallon jug of gavilyte-n, I did not use the flavor packet (states it was optional anyway). I did listen to others and added 2 pitcher packets of crystal light lemonade. It was fine getting it down. I just wish it w ... Show Full Comment

    I have my colonoscopy this morning. I was so nervous about the prep, but honestly Iâ??m not sure what I was so afraid of! The Gavilyte-N tastes way better than expected. I had no stomach cramping, just minor bloating. I mixed the Gavilyte with Crystal Lite Pure Lemonade and it definitely helped. I also took zofran before each session (evening and morning) helped SO much. Donâ??t believe ... Show Full Comment

    I must admit that after reading various reviews on different websites about Gavilyte-N, I was a little skeptical about taking this prior to my colonoscopy. Maybe this is not for everyone as body conditions vary from person to person and that is why maybe some people experienced bad reactions. 24 hours prior to my colonoscopy, I mixed the lemon flavor packet along with a pitcher packet of Crystal L ...

    Not sure of all the negative comments. this is my 3rd colonoscopy and this GaviLyte G is the best tasting g I have had. Seriously. it's harder to drink so much at one time then the taste or flavor, so maybe the product has been improved? I used the lemon flavor. I was surprised I a good way that it is not horrible.
