    Mixed with Crystal Light lemon instead of flavor pack. Refrigerated but made me real cold as I consummed so allowed rest to come to room temperature. Was on low fiber diet for 3 days. This product worked well. About 1 hour to begin and another 3 to finish elimination. Some light cramps and some gas. Using a straw and getting 8oz down with 25 swallows was key for me (I like to count). Did 8oz every ... Show Full Comment

    The most disgusting substance I have ever ingested. Threw up several times while taking it. I would liken the taste to a combination of salt water and liquid plastic. Absolute torture.

    3rd colonoscopy, treatment to complete by far. I have Crohn's Disease so I didn't have any problem going to the bathroom. I used a straw to drink and would run a sucker along my tongue between each sip. It made me very nauseous and I threw up twice and ended up getting only 3/4 of the treatment down. It works, but so does a lot of other options. The only upside to this was the price.
