Hello Barbara,

If you are talking about Fleet Phospho Soda Prep the reason you don't see it anywhere is because they took it off the market. It had many risks associated with the product.

Most of the powders to be mixed with water in a carton would be available by prescription only.

If you like products for colon cleansing that don't have much taste you could go with over the counter Miralax. That is the powder which you mix with lots of water and Miralax dissolves completely in water. The best part about it is that this type of laxative doesn't really get into the system.

You can use Fleet enema with Miralax powder. But your doctor may want for you to also take a few Bisacodyl tablets for a complete emptying if you only using over the counter products.

You need to drink lots of water to prevent dehydration and report unusual stomach pain and severe cramps to your doctor right away.

I wish you easy colonoscopy and great results!

The test itself is a breeze, but drinking that liquid is so wicked. It's like taking a jug of water, and dipping a fish in it, and driking it.

If they can put a man on the moon, they can make a flavour for this disgusting fluid.....
