Discussions that mention trilyte

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) board

I've never heard of doing the prep that way. I have heard of the fleet, but my doctor wanted me to drink the magnesium citrate on a Wednesday afternoon and then the trilyte on a thursday afternoon, prior to my colonoscopy on Friday morning. In addition, from Wednesday afternoon till Thursday afternoon, I could only have clear liquids, and nothing with red coloring in it. After Thursday, I was not eating or drinking anything until after the colonoscopy that Friday. It was a long three days. I think I lost around 8 pounds! lol
