For those who have crohns and still have some constipation issues... and use miralax,  does the miralax give you the runs and ALOT of  bowel movements during the day?

Miralax made my constipation worse, so I can't use it.

I have used it daily for 18 months and it gives me the runs a bit, but when I stop the pain is so much worse that I don't mind the runs. it isn't terrible, I go maybe 4 times a day. yp

I only tried Miralax once, but it gave me nausea that lasted for several hours. For me Metamucil and sometimes stool softener works best

Well, I thought using Miralax was going ok I have been using it every other day for a couple weeks.  However, the past couple times I have used it have caused me to be in the bathroom all night long.  Last night was one of those nights... never again for me  mad

hey, I am on vacation in portland oregon, going nuts in gluten free restaurants! I take glycolax, but I assume it is about the same. no accidents and I find it a life-saver. If I skip even a day I am in terrible pain, so I guess I will just take it forever. sorry it isn't working for you, prof. yp
