Who has done the pill method for colonoscopy prep? How was it? I’m unable to drink the solution, I end up getting too nauseous and throwing up. Thanks for any input!

      I did a dulcolax pill and enema prep once for a sigmoidoscopy and it was definitely easier than the suprep that i did the first time, only thing i will say as a downside is the laxative pill i took makes you cramp which was uncomfortable/a bit painful

      I haven’t tried the pill method, but I’ve found that the Miralax + Gatorade prep is much easier to tolerate. Maybe you could see if that would be an option?

      I usually mix my solution with clear fluids, 7up does wonders for me! 😊

        @CmcC the instructions for the one I had told me to mix it in 4L of water and nothing else, so I was drinking that then trying to chase it with something, but I was still unable to :(
