I have great difficulty drinking that gallon of carp from the pharmacy.
What I do, is sort of a crash-course starvation diet of only clear liquids. I don't eat anything that could even try to make a formed stool. Liquids, liquids, liquids! I can drink plenty of water, I just can't drink that flavored carp.
I have found I can *barely* (heck, I'm cringing NOW just thinking about it) drink the very small container (2-3oz?) of Fleet Phosphosoda, washing it down with gulps of water. A poor runner-up is the 10oz bottle of Magensium Citrate also followed with plenty of water. I think I was given pills once, too. I think if I had a choice, I would do pills and water. No flavored carp, I just can't choke that stuff down.
Best of luck,

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. No improvement with Remicade. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP. Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections. Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX. Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.
