No

And are you trying now to sip it in a continuous manner rather than gulping it?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I'm just about to start again this time sipping

OK

Just go slowly with it over the next few hours

You should be able to get it all down and be ready for the colonoscopy

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
