How can you make milk of magnesia colonoscopy prep better?

This question was asked in Meskegon, Michigan on 04/02/2012.
Can you put milk of magnesia in the refrigerator? What can you do to make the milk of magnesia easier to drink before a colonoscopy? I heard that there is a citric acid you can use.

There are other preparations that may be more tolerated. Sometimes chilling the prep can help.
