I am a pharmacy student and have worked in a pharmacy for a while. It should be noted that this does not make me a qualified medical adviser...yet.
Based on what I have learned, anything that clears your bowls out like that is probably bad for you. You have beneficial flora living in your intestines which help process most of your nutrients. If you go through a process that wipes out that flora (like taking some antibiotics), you set yourself up for other potentially harmful bacteria to take over and may get infections, chronic diarrhea etc.
The pharmacist I work for refuses to sell anyone the over the counter flushes and I think he would consider them not only to be a sham, but harmful.
So IMO, save the flush for when you get your colonoscopy.
It's also a really bad idea if you have IBS or an intestinal disease like Crohn's...
