colonoscopy prep

Re: Colonoscopy prep. I have been advised by my doctor to take dulcolax and magnesium citrate. II read on the website of a pediatric GI practice, that grape Magnesium citrate is the  "best" tasting.  Can I use that even though it is grape?

Also, which versiion of Dulcolax should I get, the pharmacy has about 4 different  "kinds".
Thanks,

Yes, you can take the grape flavored magnesium citrate.  I believe the prep is usually done with the Dulcolax tablets, but you may want to double check with your doctor.
