    My doctor recommended miralax. I really hoped it would provide relief for my life altering constipation. My experience has been awful and is still going on. I took it for 5 nights before I finally had a bowel movement. For the next 3 days I have had terrible gas and soft mushy leakage that I can't control. I have been very uncomfortable.

    I have had severe constipation, diverticulitis, ibs and an ileus with a recent bowel resection. I was on a lot of narcotic pain meds which gave me severe constipation. I was placed on Linzees which worked, but too well. Miralax was gentle enough to use everyday with out having to make mad dashes to the bathroom. I had no side effects and It has allowed me to stop taking Linzees.

    I only take this occasionally. I suffer from gastroparesis & had to change my diet. All my veggies must be cooked now. It's hard to get enough fiber & water. I'll get BM's that won't come out and usually one dose of Miralax does the trick very quickly.

    I have been using Miralax every day for the past three years, and it has kept me out of the hospital. I am prone to bowel obstructions due to scoliosis and adhesions due to multiple abdominal surgeries. It has really improved my quality of life and reduced a lot of worry, anxiety and discomfort from painful, life-threatening obstructions.
