The pills are hard to get down. I opted for the pills for my first colonoscopy, figuring it would be easier than to chug all that nasty liquid, but I really regretted my decision halfway through. The pills are uncoated, and therefore have a very bitter taste. You have to swallow several of them in a small amount of time, and they're huge. Bigger than Pentasa.
Magnesium citrate gets the job done. If you mix it with Sprite, you can't even taste it. It also tastes a lot better on its own when it's cold, so you can refrigerate it if you'd like.
