Do you need to follow a low fiber diet before a colonoscopy?

NO

Colonoscopy
You will be instructed to take a clear liquid diet and not to eat after the evening prior to the procedure. The most important part is to drink ALL the Golitely which will cause diarrhea until stool completely clears and only water is what you see. Its very important to be clean so that minute polyps can be seen and removed and no lesion missed.

I am doing colonoscopy prep( suprep). IS it ok for me to take my probitoics after I am done with the cleanse? Will it mess up the test at all? I also am on low dose augmentin so need the probiotics.

It's ok

Colonoscopy
The probiotics deliver "good" bugs into your GI tract and should disappear before they reach your colon, which is obviously what the colonoscopy will look at. Minimize the water you take them with if it's close to the time of your colonoscopy, as a stomach full of fluid may interfere with the sedation for your procedure.

Some basic remedies include keeping it cold, using a straw, or mixing / chasing it with something you like. Otherwise you may need a different bowel prep or a dose of an anti-emetic like Phenergan or Reglan before you start.
