Pico-salax vs. Purg-odan (picodan)

Has anyone used either of these for prep for a colonoscopy? If so which works better? I need to do my cleansing tomorrow and cheaped out with the Purg-odan and now I'm having second thoughts. The pharmacist said it is just the generic form of the Pico-salax, but that is the brand name my doctor recommended so now I'm thinking maybe I should go back and get that instead.

It should work just as well. I hope by the time you read this, everything will be behind you.

Sorry, just realized the pun, which was totally unintentional.

Let us know how you're doing.
