Over the counter Magnesium Citrate prep- anyone use it?

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with using liquid Magnesium Citrate as a colonoscopy prep, if so please share? Thank you. (also include if you had to take another laxative with it).

I used it. About 5 hours before drinking the first one, I took some dulcolax laxatives. I found that it worked pretty well though I do have to admit that the second bottle was tough to get down even though it was chilled.

I used it for a small bowel capsule endoscopy. It worked well, but tastes gnarly. I call it "liquid Satan in a bottle". I am told that chilling is crucial. Wish I'd known that lol.
