I have the Miralax prep to take for a scope in February.  My question is can you mix it with something else besides Gatoraid.  I hate Gatoraid with a passion and have a extremely hard time getting it down.  I know it will supply minerals and vitamins needed but....for the prep can I mix the miralax with something else and just drink the Gatoraid at my own leasure?
I would love some suggestions.  Also, I understand why Gatoraid is used so please don't lecture me on it :-)   I don't plan on dehydrating myself and causing other problems. I just want to be able to take the prep without problems.

I've used the Miralex prep two times. The first time, I thought I was going to go into a diabetic coma from all the Gatorade. The second time, I used 1/2 the Gatorade and mixed it with water. It was much less disgusting and seemed to work just as well. I asked the pharmacist about the diluting the Gatorade and she said it would be fine - that it's the fluid that's necessary. I definitely recommend the diluted Gatorade prep.
