It was not bad. I mixed mine with Sprite. Had no trouble getting it down. The sweetness didn't get to me until the very end. I left a couple of tablespoons unfinished. I drank with a straw and put the straw in the back of my mouth. I also refrigerated it so it would be nice and cold.
Good luck!

I drank it cold and mixed with sprite. I quite didn't finish it all, but I also did a liquid die fort 3 days before the prep.
It wasn't horrible like I had anticipated

That's good news, guys. The last stuff I had (2015) was soooo salty, I thought I was drinking the ocean.


Guess I'll mix this with Gatorade lemon-lime and/or Mountain Dew.

Default Ghosted

It didn't start working in the 1st hr. as expected, and by the time two hrs. had passed I started doing ab exercises. But it eventually worked with a fury, approx. 30 visits to the throne.


Glad I started 2nd dose at 1am rather than 2am as ordered though; otherwise, it would've continued right up to the time the designated driver arrived.


All for naught anyway, because the doc ghosted me -- and all her other colonoscopy appts. -- due to an emergency. So I need to do the whole drill all over -- purchasing the Suprep, paying for the driver, all liquid diet the day before, and of course the misery of pre-colonoscopy evening.


S*** happens (no pun intended).

I did the above plus one other trick that helped me a lot. After a few pulls on the straw, I sucked on a lemon wedge before going back for more. It really helped kill the gaggy taste. I've read that you could use a lime wedge instead.

Ugh. Well, not much more you can do if there's an emergency. It just stinks (pun intended).

I mixed with water.. I don't recommend it. The saltiness.. The first batch I was able to just power through.. The second one.. Struggled.

I drank mine through a straw as quickly as possible, and as far back in my throat as I could handle without gagging myself. I also refrigerated it so it was really, really cold if I remember correctly. It wasn't terribly salty like the stuff I had in years past, it didn't taste great by any means, but I was able to get it down and have it stay down . Good luck!
