I've only had the GoLytely, but I could drink clear liquids up until 3 hours before my prep. It would have been awful if I couldn't wash it down with anything. Jello helped me get rid of the taste a lot, too. I'd take a bite of jello after taking a drink. And coffee helped cut the taste, too. Maybe you could double check with your doctor about
that because I just looked up HalfLytely instructions on the Web and they say you can drink clear liquids with it. http://www.halflytely.com/cons/faqs/faqs.html#4
No, I thought the CT contrast was much, much worse than the prep. The contrast I had was disgusting and I couldn't even finish it b/c it made me feel like I was going to throw up. I was also really sick at that time though.
I thought of one other thing that really helped both curb hunger and get rid of the yucky taste: popsicles
