    This was very easy to use. The taste is unpleasant, but you’ll get through it. The great thing was this totally worked and I didn’t have any cramping, pain or sweats which I have always had with other laxatives. I did feel a bit nauseated after the second dose, but I just rested and stopped drinking for a bit and that passed. This was nowhere near as awful as what I had anticipated.

    Used product for colonoscopy prep. Found it to be extremely effective, and lets be honest, why else would you take this? Imperative that the doctor be able to see everything during the procedure, why risk that due to it tasting bad, or making you stay in bathroom for long period of time. That is why you take it.. Now for actually taking it, believe it or not, not all that bad. When you drink i ... Show Full Comment

    Horrible tasting. The second dose made me feel really sick immediately. Nausea, increased heart rate, and felt very shaky. Vomited after 3 hours of feeling horrible. Will never use this prep again. Awful stuff.

    I have had 5 colonoscopies and have used 5 different preps. All preps taste awful. That is the nature of the medication. This prep is ranked #2 for me. It was very effective, caused little to no bloating, cramping or gas, slight nausea. ALL PREPS HAVE THESE SIDE EFFECTS!!! Plenvu was fairly easy to use. I would use it again.

    Terrible experience. The first dose caused me to use the bathroom right away and I was ok. Taking powder packs a and b caused me to vomit some of the prep and made me nauseous. I also had the prep running down my legs before I could reach the toilet. My blood pressure skyrocketed, and I had an anxiety attack. I have never had such a horrible experi nice.
