What is the best solution to use for a cleanse before a colon exam?

Before a colon examination, such as a colonoscopy, I recommend use of laxatives that contain polyethylene glycol plus electrolytes (such brand names as Miralax, Golytely, Nulytely and many others).  I do not recommend Magnesium Citrate or Fleets Phosphasoda.
