    Yes, no problems what-so-ever (i have to take it like 3 times a day)!

    ETA: forgot to clarrify where my info is from: i was told to take it from midwifes in hospital, GP, obs & my colorectal surgeon.

    Shouldn't be a prob, they made me drink it flat out in the hosp as you can't leave until you've had a bowel movement.
