Phosposoda prep question

I have to prep for a GI test by taking a whole bottle of phosphosoda. I know that this is usually given, but I feel like the whole bottle is an awful lot.
Last time I had to take this, I had to take only 3 tablespoons and was cramping and in the bathroom for hours. Also, I am very small (94 pounds) so I feel like this is just a bit too much.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Re: Phosposoda prep question

I always had to do the gallon of go-lytely yucky stuff. There were a couple of times I had to do 2 10 oz. bottles of magnesium citrate laxative with 2 to 4 dulcolax laxatives and reglan. I too am only 95 pounds. I do remember a nurse told me one time that as soon as my bm's were clear that meant I was cleaned out.
