General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Suprep
Suprep is easier to take than Golytely, tho drinking 32 ounces of water within an hour of taking Suprep can make you uncomfortable. Be aware...do NOT stray far from 'facilities'...there is literally NO warning sign...you just start "going."

Suprep
I had my second colonoscopy on Monday of this week. Used Suprep. My first was 10 years ago. Used Fleet Phospho Soda then, which afterward was pulled from the market because some were experiencing kidney failure. Both my wife and I used the Fleet 10 years ago with no problems whatsoever. Moot point. You can't take it if you can't get it. I went into the Suprep with a bit of apprehension after reading some of the horror stories. All in naught. Had no problem in drinking down the Suprep in a matter of minutes. Chilled the mixture prior to taking and sucked through a large straw. Tasted somewhere between black cherry and Dr. Pepper. In fact, if I didn't know better and someone had put the mixture in a bottle and told me it was a new non-carbonated soft drink, I would have believed it. But I would never buy it because I wasn't crazy about the taste. No cramping whatsoever and started on the pot within the hour. No different experience taking the second dose. After finishing the colonoscopy I asked the doctor if I had been clean enough. His exact words were "It looked good from my end". I would use nothing but Suprep in the future. Old military saying: "If something works, don't xxxx with it." In overall summary, excellent experience with Suprep.

Suprep preparation
In preparing for my 2nd colonoscopy, I used Suprep (2-dose) and it was pretty benign as far a preps go. The solution tastes pretty bad, but I mixed mine with white cherry PowerAde and it went down pretty easy. The response time for me was about an hour and then another 2.5 hours for each dose. This is a much better prep than the other I used before (that was awful--chewing a bag full of tablets and drinking a ton of water). Splitting it into two doses 8-10 hours apart was much easier to handle. I'm soon on my way for my procedure and I believe the Suprep its job...much easier than I anticipated. The only side-affect I had was
some minor chills and a very slight headache...

SuPrep tips
So I read all the posts, watched YouTube videos about drink mixes and want to report my experience so far. First I want to say that there is only one flavor that will make me gag upon touching my lips and that is cherry flavored cough syrup. I knew there would be a 50/50 chance that I got cherry or grape. Guess what flavor I got? Yep. Cherry flavored cough syrup, or how I like to refer to it as the napalm of death. Anyways, I mixed mine with extra cold water and also had the bottles of SuPrep refrigerated. I added some ginger ale and peach mango crystal light for flavor but just a little bit. I also took a 4 mg Zofran (cut an 8 mg in half) about an hour beforehand. That helped immensely. I blasted some workout/running music and danced around my living room while my husband cheered me on. I used a straw and drank it as I could but neither slow or chugging it. Then I immediately went o hang out in the bathroom. There really is no warning like everyone says. I can honestly say the rest isn't so bad. It's better than the symptoms that caused me to seek medical attention. And I'm totally used to those.

I hope this all helps someone out there.
