Ah, so that's the after-taste, yuck, that's the only unpleasant part. I'll have to find something that works for me, maybe apple juice, I can't stand orange Gatorade, the first time I ever tried it was during my first chemo session and I drank it warm, it really turned me off Gatorade! I had read that pico salax tastes like orange gatorade and I'm happy that's not the case, lol.
I'm still wondering why they wanted me to start at 4pm and hubby thinks maybe they're sparing me having to deal with toilet issues all day, would they be so kind? lol
