Colonoscopy and Endoscopy: Preparation

I will be taking a Miralax Prep but I cannot drink power drinks they make me sick, so my patient advisor said I could drink it with water. Now I read you need Gatorade to supply the electrolytes you lose. So, since I can't drink that, what other solutions are there to help with electrolytes? I have high blood pressure also so don't know what to replace it with. I'm starting the prep today.

Hey @dablues, have you tried Pedialyte?

I use Lyteshow, it is an electrolyte-replenish drop. I have used it for years in place of Gatorade and the like. My husband bought it on amazon when I was doing cancer treatments.
