    I have used this product twice for 2 colonoscopies. I found it easy to use and it did its job. The only real problem I had with it was not really with the product itself. I suffered a bit of incontinence and a very sore bottom after drinking all the solution. Perhaps the next time I will just stay in the bathroom to drink this since the reaction was so quick. I had no other side effects.
