Question colonoscopy prep question

Has anyone used SuPrep as their prep before a colonoscopy? Was it horrible tasting or really painful?? I start the prep on monday and I'm a little worried about feeling a lot of discomfort.

Re: colonoscopy prep question

No I did not have to use the Su-Prep; I had to use Go-Lightly and it was very nasty tasting(like salty Kool-aid) I have to be honest with you, but try this, get that water very very cold when you mix the solution and drink it with a straw and do not let the solution touch your tongue, you want to avoid having it touch your taste centers as much as possible. Also, I drank cold water imbetween, you will avoid dehydration and the resulting headache if you remember to keep yourself hydrated. Other people add things such as Crystal Lite to the solution to reduce that salty taste, but I did not need to if I drank through a straw. Good luck and you will get through it but let us know how it goes.
