I never had a problem with constipation until put on a heart medication. Miralax has been a wonderful solution - no bloating, cramping, etc. I haven't seen any side effects at all except possibly a little mouth & nasal dryness in the afternoon. I hope it's as safe as it seems!

My son was put on this medication 5 years ago when it was still "perscription". He has suffered with constipation since birth. Without this medication he ends up completely blocked up and has ended up in the hospital. He has had no side effects from it. Takes it in his juice at dinner. He is an active 8 year old with a healthy diet and will remain on Miralax until told otherwise.
