I've tried to drink it, I have, two 250ml glasses and I've vomited from both. I can't do it, I also tried ringing the hospital but the department is closed on Sundays.

All I've had to eat the past 12 hours is a slice of white bread and butter.

Any natural remedies I can try? Lots of water?

Is there a pharmacy that's open? Or drug store? I used mag citrate for my prep, it's over the counter so you could just go buy some.

Oh I feel so bad for you! I've got to do this is a couple of weeks. I'm going to ask the doctor to see if they can give me something else that stuff is absolutely vile. I can't believe that in this day and age we can reach and photograph planets billions of miles away but no one can make a bowel prep that doesn't taste like feet???

I find that most bowel preps go down easier if they are very cold. I add ice to mine.

I feel really bad for you Walrus.

The prep is just plain awful. I hope things got better for you.

You would think that somebody would make a prep that is easier on us.
