Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Amitiza® (lubiprostone) plus GoLYTELY® (polyethylene glycol-electrolyte solution) versus placebo plus GoLYTELY® (polyethylene glycol-electrolyte solution) for outpatient colonoscopy preparation: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy and tolerability of Amitiza plus GoLytely to the efficacy and tolerability of a placebo plus GoLytely.
