For Bowel Preparation “I’ve had several colonoscopies done. This was the first time I was given Golytely. This was much better tasting than whatever the other G-E doctor prescribed.”

For Bowel Preparation “This was my third time prepping for a colonoscopy second time with golytly. I usually don’t mind the taste but this time they didn’t offer a flavor so I got the unflavored yuck! Started at 6pm immediately felt bloated drank till 8pm expecting to explode before my next dosing at 3 am. 2:30 I feel like it’s finally going to work it did. So I’m sitting in the bathroom with a 1/2 gallon of Satan’s nectar drinking it plain and chasing with Gatorade no straw. I got the best clean out I’ve ever had this time. Next time (I grow polyps so I’m an every 3 year preper ) I’ll ask for the flavored kind or add some crystal lite. All in all not a bad experience now it’s over.”

For Constipation, Chronic “This is the hair that bit the dog in the ass!I end up with three procedures three different preps within two weeks time!Now because of the back to back procedures with these preps I have chronic constipation I can no longer go to the bathroom on my own so I have to take golytely again!It’s created a vicious cycle and I think it’s ruining my GI tract my large intestines can’t produce feces on their own anymore I don’t even get it dropped down into the rectum!On top of that that he keep giving me barium experimenting knowing that that’s making it worse exacerbating what’s going on already!Three different gastroenterologist and they’re killing me!Golightly has ruined my life!I can’t eat a thing without getting plugged up!”

For Bowel Preparation “After having two other colonoscopies I suggest to drink this without any flavoring, it taste much better that way. Adding the flavor only seems to intensify the salty taste I divided the drink up in the 4 quart containers and drank 1 at a time much easier to do. Drink it through a straw. You have less chance of becoming nauseous . I coated my rump as as suggested by others who had the prep. It really helped. P.S. Thank you to all the people who offered suggestions it really helped. I also drank the prep at room temperature and chilled. The only difference was at room temperature it was a little bit more salty. If you’ve ever mixed baking soda and water for heartburn that’s what this prep reminded me of but, actually tasted better. It was not horrible. At the end I replenished with Gatorade. I also had 3 more clear BM’s the next day which was the morning of my procedure. So you might want to wear a protective pad or something like the depends or take an extra pair of clothes in case you can’t get to the bathroom fast enough.”

For Bowel Preparation “I wouldn’t normally review this type of thing, but I had read every horror story on the internet before I took it. It didn’t taste “good” and everyone is different, but it was nowhere near as awful as I expected. This is not medical advice, but as other people have suggested:1. chill it so it’s cold when you drink it2. use a straw3. As per my doctor, I rinsed my mouth between glasses with ginger ale4. Based on what I’d read, I ate a low residue diet for the 4 days before (toast, bananas, jello, yogurt, applesauce) and was done with the process in 3 hours.5. Do some stretches to move your stomach around.My problem turned out to be revealed thru the endoscopy, not colonoscopy. But this wasn’t among my top 25 worst experiences in life”

Just wasn’t that bad (taken for less than 1 month) June 16, 2017

For Bowel Preparation “Had to do my prep before the doctor had to go mining. I chose the unflavored. Used water at room temperature. I would recommend this. Taste a little like salty water. Don’t refrigerate it or you will get the chills. It will clean you out! I felt great, I believe, from the Go Lytly alone. Felt great getting the pipes cleaned.”
