Once I compared minerals content and osmolarity of PegLyte and RestoraLax + Gatorade.
They were quite different.
I came to conclusion that PegLyte should be nicer to your colon.
Butt, butt, butt … RestoraLax + Gatorade just tastes much better.
My personal recommendation:
If you can consume prescribed volume of PegLyte it would ensure proper cleaning.
However if you have a choice between using only half of prescribed volume of PegLyte or full volume of RestoraLax + Gatorade, go for Gatorade.
This time I will switch back to PegLyte. I should have strong enough will power to consume the whole bottle.
