I am curious to know if anyone that has a slow moving digestive system has problems with Miralax or other clean out medications?
I go back and forth between constipation and D. When the const. hits I just don't have BMs. I take Colace, smalll doses of Miralax, MOM, dulcolax, Fleets, etc... Last night I finally took 12 doses of Miralax ( which is what my GI prescribes for colonoscopy prep) . Nothing happened, no clean out, nothing. I saw my doc. today and he said it would eventually come out. Well 24 hours after taking the many doses of Miralax I am finally getting the clean out!!!!
Does anyone out there have problems with a very slow moving gut?
The strange thing is that next week I may have the big D and go 5-8 times a day for a week or so?
I don't understand my body
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
By the way, I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2000. This constipation thing is new to me as of last June when I was in Hosp. for a week with a flare. It has been off and on since then.
