I will agree that the prep is not pleasant however there are other options besides drinking liters or gallons of the laxative preps. My doc gave me the visicol pill rx and I will never go back to the phospho and golytly, etc. It may be worth asking your doc about
this. The pills are big and you have to take a lot of them but I had no nausea or cramping with them at all. It was great!
