I have heard that the Miralax doesn't clean quite as well but my GI says that I do well with it. I've done the 2 gallon, the 1 gallon, and the Fleets phospha soda over the years. Of these I prefer the Miralax... but I am still hoping for something better!
Q, I am instructed to have only clear liquids on Prep Day. I am to mix a 238 g container of Miralax into 64 oz of anything clear: Gatorade, Fruit2o... I am using a peach-flavored water mix. (Mix the grams into the ounces... funny that they put it that way on the instructions
At 5 pm, take 2 Dulcolax tablets. At 6, start drinking the prep and drink it all, a glass every 15-30 minutes. When finished, take 2 more Dulcolax.
I am impressed with your "no flavor" mix; does the prep mixture have any taste, or is it flavorless like the Miralax? In general my preferred beverage is water rather than juice or soda or flavored waters. I wonder if I could just mix this into water?
And then after I am supposed to drink as much as I can until 4 hours prior to the procedure. Obviously I will drink a lot all day; that will make the whole thing more comfortable. I report to the endoscopy center at 8 am Thursday.
