I have used both. I don't like either. I had to add sugar to them to get them down. The moviprep is less to drink.

I hated MoviPrep. I could barely get it down without gagging. I made it more bearable by gulping down a whole bunch, and then chasing it with small sips of ginger ale or apple juice to get the flavor out of my mouth. Sorry if my post is kind of a downer. I wish I had something more positive to say about it. Sorry!
PS.  I also did Go Litely once and found it to be about the same taste-wise.

I get to do Movi Prep this sunday. So I guess Ill find out then. Ive done go lytley though about 4 times. I think it should be renamed to Go Heavily.

It tastes nasty, so I just gulp it down and try not to think about it.

I just prepped with Moviprep--- well you asked-- it was horrible. I gagged everytime I drank it. The only good thing I can say is that the amount is about half of the Golightly.

Good luck
