I have taken this medication for 1 week and with no results I hope it starts to work soon because it is so easy to take. I have noticed I have a headache since starting the medication don't know if that has anything to do with the meds or not I do have bloating and gas.. I am going to give it some more time before I give up completely.

I have been on morphine for 5 years. No other laxative worked for me, except Milk of Magnesia. Since I have been taking MiraLax, I can depend on a daily BM. No side effects, so far. Love it and would definatlt reccomend it.

I have never had any bad side effects until now. For the last 2 months I have been having chronic diarrhia, with no other symptoms. Now I see on this site, that Miralax can cause it due to overuse.

Comment:
I am disappointed that I have not had the same results as others who found this to be a positive solution to constipation. Their claim of non bloating, non gas etc. was not the case for me. I had terrible bloating, and rancid gas, and it was almost constant. My BM's were different than they've ever been, not looking or smelling the same. I was miserable.
