Ok so ive started my 3 day prep with the Miralax today and soon after drinking it(which it basically had no taste) I felt nauseus, and I held back for about 4 hours and just now pucked, and I feel alittle bit better now. Anyone else have Miralax make you nauseus, this is my first time taking it so im not sure what its like. I just hope it doesnt make me feel sick after each time, because I have to drink a whole 14dose bottle in 3 days.:(

THREE DAYS???!!!

Are you having surgery???

It has to be better than the "jug-o-puke-aid-litely" that costs $60. . . But I'm sorry you are having trouble with it.

Blessings!

I've NEVER heard of a three day Miralax prep! shocked I take one capful of Miralax a day for constipation and it has never made me nauseated/sick. I've also had to consume the whole bottle of Miralax as a prep the day before a colonoscopy with no problems. Good luck to you! :-)

Three days for a prep? Maybe you can double check that? I do half of a 14 dose bottle with 32 oz Gatorade and the other half of the Miralax with more Gatorade 2 hours later. I've done that 4 times now. I always feel a little nauseated but I think its just because I don't drink that much at one time usually. I did prep for a bowel resection in one day too.

Three days seems a little excessive. I only had to go one day for the prep and that was the day before the procedure itself...maybe a typo? I've never had to use miralax though. Fleet's phosphosoda was sufficient.
