Has anyone used Pico salax for a colonoscopy prep? Is it better than the good old phospha soda??
This is what the dr prescribed this time around. They no longer use the phospha soda. I hope it is better. Though atleast I could keep the PS down unlike the one time I used the Golytely. That was AWEFUL!!
Hi Westat I just had my scope last Friday and that is what I took the Pico Salax and it was the best bowel prep ever not something to brag about
