    I was prescribed to drink 8 oz every 10 minutes until I finally used the bathroom. On my 5th glass, I threw up profusely. And on my last two gags, straight blood started coming out. And no I have not ate or drank anything red, well really haven't eaten or drank anything at all. And still have not used the bathroom. So I tortured myself with the taste and vomited blood all for nothing..

    This is my 3rd time doing a colonoscopy prep and I have to say this is by far the BEST tasting prep I have used. The preps are usually sooooo salty that they are unbearable to the point of gagging and vomiting. What makes it easier for me is I drink 8 oz every 15-20 minutes and between each sip I take I sip a tiny bit of regular lemonade. Not sure why others are giving this prep bad reviews ...

    Unable to drink this; it's so salty and awful. I have downed two 8-ounce glasses while concurrently sucking on lemon drop but I can't go on without throwing up. Not sure what to do at this point. Have heard from some others that the Miralax option is much more humane? I should have insisted on this other option.

    I did as instructed in preparation for a colonoscopy. Everything went well. The colonoscopy was cancelled. That was a week ago. I've been experiencing abdominal pain on the right side of my abdomen since using the prep and alternate between constipation and diarrhea. This was suppose to be a routine check, not the start of a new medical issue. I will NEVER go through this again.

    I have to laugh at the other reviews. This is not that bad. It has almost no taste, the lemon makes it easier, more of a salt water solution - which it is. Maybe it wasn't bad for me is because I always eat a healthy diet and all these other people are use to junk food and alcohol. It was not bitter nor real sweet. Just the volume you have to drink and time span - stay home and don't ... Show Full Comment
