common problem..: The large volume bowel preps are effective if you drink the whole think over 4 hours or less, which is about one glass every 10 minutes. It will work more diluted if you still get the whole gallon down in 4 hours. There are other newer preps that are more expensive but much easier to take because it is a lot less fluid to get down and the taste is a little better.
