The author presents an improved method of preparation for colonoscopy that involved no dietary limitation on the patient until the day of the examination and that was shown by a randomized questionnaire evaluation to earn good patient tolerance and acceptance. Patients were given 10 mg of cisapride and 75 mg of sodium picosulfate before sleep on the day preceding the examination, and 50 g of magnesium citrate powder (MP) in 1,200 mL lukewarm water before the examination.

Comparison of three colon cleansing methods: evaluation of a randomized clinical trial with 300 ambulatory patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that while 4 liters of Golytely and X-Prep plus enema have equivalent cleansing efficacy for colonoscopy, patients judged X-prep to be less unpleasant.
Comparison of a new colon lavage solution (Golytely-RSS) with a standard preparation for air-contrast barium enema.
TLDR
Golytely-RSS is an acceptable alternative method to standard colon-cleansing methods for air-contrast barium enema and may be preferable in patients with certain renal or cardiovascular diseases, but side effects may preclude the use of this colon- Cleansing regimen routinely.
A randomized prospective trial comparing oral sodium phosphate with standard polyethylene glycol-based lavage solution (Golytely) in the preparation of patients for colonoscopy.
TLDR
It is concluded that, in the group of patients studied, sodium phosphate is a safe colonic cleansing agent that is better tolerated and more effective than Golytely.
