I just did the Osmo-prep two days ago and found it much preferable to the Go-Lytely "jug." It is a lot of pills, but you don't have the nasty aftertaste. Be prepared to drink a lot to wash them down! I didn't do any pills other than those, but I have had two resections now and things move through pretty quickly! My dr. had me on soft foods (easily digested) the day before the prep and then clear liquids the day of it. I think I could have easily gotten away without finishing off the prep, but did it anyway to be super safe. Good luck! The prep is always the worst part. You won't remember what they do to you!
