Is the preparation for a colonoscopy really uncomfortable?

In brief: Depends

I find that several preps suprep, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) snapple prep are fairly tolerable.
The traditional 4 liters of GoLytely was very difficult to take and did not taste that great. Some patients still use it today, but there are much easier, better preps.
