Peglyte Prep

Hey everyone,

I have my first colonoscopy tomorrow morning. My GI prescribed me the peglyte and it is obviously absolutely horrible as I’m sure most of you know. I’ve pretty much gotten through almost half of it, so about 2 L. My bowel movements pretty much look like pee now. Yellow but clear. Do I really need to finish the rest? I do plan on doing a couple more cups in the morning but will it be nessecary for me to finish the entire 4L?

You may need the cups in the morning...usually as long as it is perfectly clear you can stop taking it.
Think carefully before not finishing the solution since if it’s not perfectly clear they may not
perform the procedure.
All the best for a successful conclusion tomorrow
