    I took a generic form of this prep, the lemon-lime pre flavored (no flavor packets to add) (Polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution for my colonoscopy prep, Metoclopromode) Its taste is very palatable, imagine drinking a 7 up that has gone flat, it's a mild lemon-lime flavor that's a little bit salty. Easy to drink, no gag, no holding the nose. I started drinking it at 6.30pm an ... Show Full Comment

    It takes too long to work. Once it starts working it takes 2 days of continual slow progress to empty the bowel.

    This is my 5th colonoscopy and I hve thought each time that I could make a fortune by making this Trlyte taste better but you are not supposed to add anything major to it. This time I discovered a white juice made by Welch's (mango peach) that I take a few gulps after the Trilyte and the taste disappears instantly. Probably not as much fun as bourbon but you'll be amazed with the effect.

    I just had my first colonoscopy. I took 2 Dulcolax tablets which didn't seem to do much. At 6 p.m. I started drinking the Trilyte and drank a 12 oz glass every 15 minutes. The first two were not too bad, I had used the lemon flavor packet but it really didn't have much of a lemon naste. Not sure how I would describe the taste other than kind of chemically. The more glasses I drank the wors ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking Trilyte at 5pm for a Colonoscopy at 10am the next day. Mine did not come with flavor packs, but I had seen other reviews about mixing it with Crystal Lite so that's what I did. I took one Crystal Lite Natural Lemonade flavor 3.2 oz powder packet (usually makes 12 quarts) and poured it in with the Trilyte powder, then mixed with water. It made the drink taste just fine.
