try drinking it as cold as possible.  sucking on a piece of lemon can help.  i would set goals for getting it down, like 5 big strawfuls every 5 minutes and then 5 minutes off.  the sooner you finish it, the sooner you will hit the bathroom...............and then the best part, it will be over sooner and you can get some sleep.   good luck

personally, i couldn't finish it. I was supposed to drink 2 bottles of the stuff, and I got down one and 1/4. After that i started throwing it up. Oh that stuff makes me ill >.< Doc said it was ok though, I was very clear. *note* you should always follow doctor's instructions /disclaimer

Yeah, the last time, I only finished half of what I was supposed to, and said "that's it, if i'm not cleared out at this point, i don't care!". So i'm aiming for half, thanks for the comment. I just wanted to know I wasn't alone in being a "bad" patient and not being able to finish it all..
