I am trying really hard to get this stuff into my system, but it has not been going well. I threw up and have only gone three times since I began taking it. Any suggestions or help would be tremendously appreciated.

try mixing it with juice or 7-up, it may flavor it better so you can get it down, or chase it with juice, i know its awful stuff to take, they have to come up with something better tasting for us.....

i chased mine with a lollipop in between each glass. it helped tremendously. hope you have some hard candy laying around. so sorry you are having such a hard time with it. even with the flavor packs it is still nasty :/ i think i went a total of 24 times. the pills hit me within 45 minutes!!

I can't do the stuff. I do the pills instead. I did mix it with rootbeer it helped. Plugging your nose and drinking with a straw also helps.

I was on the 2 day fast. Clear liquids the first day and the half-lytlely the next. I honestly could only get two glasses down. It made my stomach cramp horribly. I was cramped and using the bathroom ALL DAY! I also had to drink that Fleets' Oral Phosphate soda which is pretty much as bad as the Half-Lytely. Anyway, my colonoscopy was scheduled for the next morning. The night before, I was so sick of going to the bathroom and felt so incredibly ill that i didn't care if i finished all of the liquid. The doctor said, after the procedure, "wow, you must have finished every last drop because you were really cleaned out!" I just nodded. Honestly, if you are on a clear liquid diet for 2 days and drinking as much of that crap as you can, i wouldn't worry too much about finishing it. There was no way in hell i could!
 
Also, try Dulcolax pills. Take 4 of them and that'll clean you out!

thanks for all of your help.
I ended up drinking most of it, with a toss here and there down the sink. I did chase it with apple juice and sucked on a hard candy. That helped a little.
I was cleaned out enough for the test to be performed.
I am small to begin with and had been on the two day fast/liquid diet, so maybe I did not really need all of that stuff anyway.

Sorry, I said I chugged but I was actually doing the phospo-soda not the half-lightly.
