I had a colonoscopy done over the summer and used the pills. It was tough drinking enough water, but I couldn't have imagined it any other way. I want to say there were six pills and I took some around 7 at night with a large amount of water and then i took one per 15 minutes or half hour or something. I am vague on details, but i hadn't heard a warning regarding the kidney problems.
Had you talked with your doctor about the pills, or just read about the kidney problems? I am sure there are disclaimers on everything, but so far, I have not had a problem. It is possible that they don't recommended using the pills if you have to have more than one of these done in a short amount of time or something.
Best of luck. The prep is the worst part. Liquid diet and for me, no red dye in food.
