In brief: If prescribed by DOC

Not sure just "high powered" the pills are or if they're prescription or not.
..but if your Dr says OK..then, go right ahead..but most people on the night before a colonoscopy are not likely to get too much use from such medications only because they are generally going to be prepping & going to the bathroom then, prepping some more...get the idea?
