Mixing the epsoms with cold grapefruit juice did the trick for me. Let it stand for about 5 minutes, stir real good, use a straw or gulp it down.
I tried my first flush without epsoms and took much longer for results and had days of bathroom runs. 2nd flush Sat I used epsoms and did it the proper way and had remarkable results and today no toilet runs.
I won't do it again without the epsoms, the results are worth the 5 minutes of bitter taste.
