I think I have managed to keep down about 1.5 out of the 2 bottles, I mixed w/the miralax.  I threw up some and every time I take a sip, I gag now.  I have it over ice and am using a straw.
 
I'm afraid that I wont be able to keep the durolax tablets down.........
 
should I try to finish the rest or try for the durolax tablets?  I have already started having bm's, have had 4 of them.
 
uuugh, I hate hurling!!! sad

It made me throw up too. I'd wait a while to let your stomach settle down then try the tablets. Maybe a couple of hours later see if you can take a little more of the miralax mixture. If not, try to see if you can retain just a lot of water to flush everything out.

Prep makes me throw up too. Just take your time and go slow. Take the tablets one at a time w/ plenty of water. Hopefully that will ward off the ole gag reflex. You hang in there!

thanks Tabitha and Judy, I got most of the miralax down and took the durolax tablets. I just needed to wait a while. I have a little of the miralax mixture left and I think I will be ok, am sipping it slowly...............stomach is not swirly anymore and now I want a cheeseburger! Can't wait to eat tomorrow.

thanks again!!!
