I just received my paperwork in the mail for a colonoscopy next week and the dr. prescribed osmoprep.  I am thrilled to NOT have to drink the jug of stuff, but wonder how this will work.  Any thoughts?  I usually react pretty quickly to the liquid jug (within 45 minutes or sooner) Thanks!

I am going to do the osmoprep ion the 19th. I had used Visacol in the past but my GI said this is what they use now instead the pills are smaller etc. The drinks never worked for me since I would always vomit them up. I asked if my GI's office had samples so luckily I wont be paying the $40 copay for the pills which helps out a bunch especially since I lost 2 jobs this year due to my surgeries/hospital stays and exhausted my TDI funds completely.
