Would it be okay to drink 1/2gal golytely (polyethylene glycol) with 1/2gal juice instead of full 1gal golytely (polyethylene glycol)? Can't handle it.

In brief: No

Golytely (polyethylene glycol) is specially formulated to clean the colon without sodium absorption or electrolyte imbalance.
Adding juices or sugar drinks may alter the electrolytes in your body.

If you are not prepped well, the exam will not be good because of retained stool.
Wish there was a better method but you are not alone in hating it.
