Is there a pre-colonoscopy bowel prep that won't make me sit in the bathroom all night?

In brief: That's the point

Unfortunately the goal of the prep is to completely clear your large intestines of fecal matter. And since there is only one exit.
... Just remember why you are doing it. Good luck!

In brief: Yes

Most people will have only 2-3 hours of bowel activity after many of the preps and should get a good nights rest.
Ask your doctor.
