Taking Trilyte before colonoscopy. No effect. Reason?

I'm supposed to have a colonoscopy at 6 a.m. tomorrow morning. I've had nothing to eat since about 5 p.m. yesterday and have been drinking water all day. I started Trilyte at 3 p.m., drinking an 8-oz glass every 10 minutes until half container was gone. Nothing has happened and it is now almost 5:30. I'm supposed to drink the other half starting at 7 p.m. I've had several colonoscopies in the past and this has never happened.

Hi

Most probably the other half will work to cleanse the colon. If not then the doctor may opt for other alternatives for the purpose.
