Colonoscopy prep, Coke OK?

I am prepping today for a colonoscopy and upper scope for tomorrow. On my instruction sheet under examples of clear liquids it says I can have Coffee as long as it doesn't have milk in it, and tea. It has other things listed as well including carbonated beverages. I just started sipping a Coke (I don't like Coffee or tea) but am wondering now if its clear enough. However I am assuming if you can have Coffee, which is even darker than Coke, you could have Coke, right? I do use a ton of ice when I drink it if that makes a difference. I also don't see the point in it having to be clear anyway. I mean, everything is coming right back out so what's the point?

Hi Nancy,
I just had my colonoscopy last week, and on my instruction sheet, cola beverages were fine, as was coffee. They seem to be concerned with solids, and things that are red....

Good Luck!!
