What are the prescription preps? My GI only permits either Pico-Salax or Citro-Mag. I find Citro-Mag a bit more powerful, but the downside is I throw up some of the second bottle everytime so I am not getting a full dose. The Pico-Salax is easier to get down and keep down, but I don't think works as well. These are both bought right off the shelf with no prescription. If there is a more powerful kind you can get via prescription I will ask my GI about it next time.
Oh plus Dulcolax. The last couple of times she has added Dulcolax to the mix. I think it helps a bit, but still not enough.
Get a script
for GoLytely next time. It is a gallon of liquid but if your scope is in thr afternoon, they have you drink half the night before and half the morning of. I mix it with cold water and chase every sip with lemonade, Gatorade or clear soda. It isnt pleasant but it has never made me sick and it always clears me out before I drink the entire thing.
