Drinking the prep with a straw really seems to help-done it both times

I chugged my first 32 ounces. The prep isn't that bad..it'll take a hour or two to kick in. Stay close to a toilet and stay hydrated. I had powerade and green jello. You'll be ok! As always, the Internet really lies and amps things more than they should. Hands down easiest procedure ever.

I agree with Riley. Use a straw. I did for both of my colonoscopies.

I just had my 6th colonoscopy and I had SuPrep for the first time.   I have to be honest, it tastes nasty.  BUT, two things I did that helped - 1.  Use a straw (like others said) and 2.  I sliced a lemon in half and licked it after each sip.  It immediately takes that nasty taste away.  Good luck!
