Keep going out to a minimum in case you need to get to the bathroom. You can probably run in and out somewhere quick. Good luck with your procedure tomorrow. Drinking this stuff is going to be the worst part of the whole thing! ;o) Answered by Rosanne Knotek 4 months ago.

What flavor mixes best with Trilyte?
I'm getting a colonoscopy on Monday and the doctor gave me Trilyte. It came with 5 different flavor packs; Citrus Berry, Lemon Lime, Orange, Pineapple, and Cherry. Has anyone had Trilyte and which flavor did you use and did it help mask the taste? Or should I just drink it without a flavor pack? Any suggestions...

Patients have told me that lemon-lime is best. Drinking it cold also helps. Answered by Kristofer Wicks 4 months ago.
I only had the pineapple, but it tasted fine to me -- no nausea, or feeling of disgust and wanting to get it out if me after drinking it each 30 mins. Answered by Leslee Morgan 4 months ago.
Going for colonoscopy tomorrow, trilyte not working what to do?
I took 4 laxatives per instructions at 4:00, started trilyte at 6:00, drank 2-1/2 liters per instructions and so far NOTHING.

It's weird that nothing happened after taking all of that stuff... I had a colonoscopy this summer and I couldn't leave the bathroom for hours. Just follow the instructions - it'll come out eventually! Good luck! Answered by Patty Zaremski 4 months ago.
When a person has a colonoscopy done what determines whether a they are given Halflytly or Trilyte?
I was told that I was being given the Halflytly so that I wouldn't have to drink so much of the liquid. I still got very sick. I used to work in a doctor's office and I remember the drug reps coming in with Heavenly Ham luches and pizza and talking to everyone about the newest drug. It actually upset me...

I was told that a person with diabetees is given the Trilyte because the fluid is dehydrating. Is the only determination really the need to drink less of the fluid? My friend has the Trilyte to take but I was given the Halflytly - and I threw up half of it. Is the Halflytly just more concentrated? It made me really sick. Answered by Tawny Synan 4 months ago.

I used to work in a doctor's office and I remember the drug reps coming in with Heavenly Ham luches and pizza and talking to everyone about the newest drug. It actually upset me pretty bad. Maybe my reaction to the Halflytly is the reason I've been feeling so poorly lately. Anyway, they determined that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Answered by Ila Hochadel 4 months ago.
It depends on what gifts the doctor got from the pharmaceutical sales rep. The crap is all Polyethylene Glycol. That is also what they use for biodegradable anti-freeze. Others may follow their doctors blindly; but for the record Hommie don't play dat. I do the Fleet Phospha Soda, chugg the little bottle and quick chase it with diet soda or Gatorade.

if it made you sick, call your doctor, there are other things you can take. Answered by Jesica Cruff 4 months ago.

Give it time, you will! Just keep on drinking as directed. Since the resulting bowel movements can be large and very watery, continue drinking water to avoid becoming dehydrated. Answered by Carmela Bundley 4 months ago.
All things come to those who wait. It will hit all of a sudden and you will say "when is this going to stop?" Remember to drink plenty of fluids and preferably sports drinks so as to maintain your electrolyte levels, Answered by Anamaria Maisch 4 months ago.
I have a colonoscopy in the morning, I have used GoLYTELY in the past, if Trilyte better ? Any side affects?

It is still a PEG (polyethylene glycol) based laxative and I refuse to take any PEG based preps. Still slimy and makes you want to vomit. Answered by Zola Siok 4 months ago.
Going in for colonoscopy tomorrow, I just drank The Trilyte, I was wondering what color the stool should be?
I have had Stomach Problems for 3 years and am Finally going in for a colonoscopy and endoscapy. I have drank all the Trilyte plus more then I was suppose to. I have clear stools now but it is really bright yellow. Is that normal or is it suppose to be clear like water?
Asked by Elida Vicens 4 months ago.
I have had this done 3 times in several years. You got the worst part done, drinking the (mine was called Kolite) drink. Yes, the yellow color is OK. My doctor told me they have a problem when a person only drinks half of it, because then there not cleaned out good enough and may be sent home to do it again. What a bummer that would be...you should be just fine. I felt no pain what so ever because they put you in a twilight sleep. You wake up quickly and say, "where's the food"? I have never ever had any ill effects from doing this test. Can go right about your normal activities the same day. The only thing they say is you should do no heavy lifting for a day or so.
