I started my prep for a colonoscopy 3 days ago, and so far it has been a million times easier than I could have hoped for, having read various horror stories in discussion forums. The bland diet is actually quite enjoyable, and the Picolax tastes fine. I drank it through a straw and that certainly worked for me. The effects of the Picolax started about 3 hours after taking it, and only lasted an hour and a half or so. The biggest challenge for me has been drinking so much water over the last 3 days but I persevered and I'm sure that has helped. Two tips that helped me - have plenty of moist toilet wipes to hand and apply Sudocrem liberally!! so far, so good
