any one ever had to use this? for severe constipation? what can I expect? what torture lies ahead?

I am not doing it for a procedure, just because I apparently have "significant fecal loading" according to the doctors.  

how long will it take if i just chug it

Miralax and Gatorade work well, too.  My dh uses them to prep for colonoscopies.  He likes it much better than Golytely.  His GI doc even started prescribing it for his patients to prep with after dh mentioned how well it works.  Just mix the Miralax with the Gatorade.  Oh, and stay near a toilet!

but i only have to pay 1.00 copay for the Golytely.

You would need like a 14 day bottle of MIralax, even the generics are pricey. bah i am such a skinflint lol.

Oh, believe me I understand.  I hope it all goes well for you whichever way you go about it.  I know the Golytely works so it should be ok for you.  I think for him it's mainly the taste of it that turns him off.  I'll have to ask him, though, it's been a while since he's needed either.  Gl!

I am a busy working mom to two very active girls.  I love my kids, play on the floor in the fort with them, take them to the park, and love them always!  I can't imagine life without them!
