    I had hard time keeping it down the liquid doesn't have a horrible taste till end of bottle, I didn't keep it down past 20 min drinks 3- 8oz cups of water to get taste out of mouth. 2nd bottle can only drink 2 drinks before gagging and feel like throwing up.

    Can't give any bowel prep five stars, because..really? However Clenpic's advantage is that you're not picking up at the pharmacy a giant container of liquid you have to drink like some of the other preps. Rinsed down with several quarts of coconut water ( to maintain a good potassium level) and water made it start working in 35 minutes, and work well. Minimal discomfort, good clean-out ...

    Comment:
    Two days of a preceding low fiber diet and continually hydrating on the prep day resulted in BMs 2.5 hours after the 1st dose. 8 hours after the 1st dose the 2nd split dose was followed by BMs in 1-1.5 hours. Felt slightly bloated with the water intake and Clenpiq. No headache or nausea. Clenpiq with water seemed simpler and preferable to a prep of Dulcolax, Miralax mix(32oz) and enemas.

    Comment:
    Clenpiq didn't taste as gross as I expected. It helped to wash it down with some cold sparkling water. The product started working in about 2 1/2 hours. It gave me some stomach cramps and queasiness that continued hours after my colonoscopy the next afternoon. The emptying process was still going on the next morning and I was worried I would have a problem en route to the endoscopy center or ... Show Full Comment
