Hello,I read on a couple of sites that having Ensure or Boost was OK the day before the colonoscopy. I read that it was totally absorbed into the small bowel. I am light headed and HUNGRY! Has anyone heard of this as being OK?Thanks

Picolax is quite good, to be fair. It works an hour after taking it. It gets warm when mixing it, just to warn you. lol. I recommend holding your nose as it's so tangy. Available in three flavours.
