My GI doctor said the best and easiest prep on the gut for people with UC is the Golightly. I have to have a colonoscopy every year. First few years were horrible, after that I learned a lesson. Three days before the PREP, I eat very lightly. Day before the PREP all I consume are liquids. On the day I have to take the prep, I only have to drink about 1/3 of it before it starts coming out clear. Doc said I am the best cleaned out person he has come across..lol.
In the hospital in May they gave me the citrate to drink. I was being fed IV, so probably had very little, if anything in me anyways. That wasn't bad at all...tasted like 7UP.
