Experimental: Split Dose
Doses of Pico-Salax split: one dose administered the night prior to colonoscopy and the other dose administered the day of the procedure.
Drug: Split Dose Pico-Salax
One dose of Pico-Salax taken the evening prior to colonoscopy and the other the morning of the procedure.
Active Comparator: Traditional Dose
Both doses of Pico-Salax taken the evening prior to colonoscopy.
Both doses of Pico-Salax taken the evening prior to colonoscopy
- bowel cleansing assessed by the Ottawa Bowel Preparation Scale [ Time Frame: day of colonoscopy ]
- patient tolerance of preparation [ Time Frame: day of colonoscopy ]
