Arrow Which prep do most of you find to be the best?

Hello. I am having a colonoscopy/endoscopy procedure done on Thursday and they gave me the tablets to take about every fifteen minutes starting at 5pm on prep day.
I heard that these tablets can cause kidney damage and nausea. I already get very nauseous with most things. And another dr is doing an ultrasound on my kidney as I am having some discomfort in my right flank. So even the slightest chance of kidney damage scares me even more because I am not sure if theres something wrong there.

What prep worked best for you? I know there are a few diferent types. They gave me the pills because the liquid they give out can be very expensive.
Is there something else they could prep me with that may not be as harsh as the pills?
Please help, I really don't want a bad prep. I am already afraid of the procedure itself
