Hi kyhurst,
I would definitely call your doc and tell him that you haven't gone with the Miralax. It took about 3 days for me to start working when I was taking it but I don't think that it should be any longer. I would see what happens today and if you don't have anything going on then I would definitely give him a call. Did he put you on a fiber therapy as well?

I did call DR. he had me do some go lightly I may not have even needed it there was no consistancy at all .I am new if you cannot tell. Will IBS make you feel constipated when your not?? I was afraid of getting impacted ( I did last wk they never told me to take anything after gallb. surgery for several days & when I did I only took it for a couple of days until after first bowel movement.)
They did have me on fiber . Dr. told me to stay off it after Ihad the impaction .Fiber has done this to me before.This is terrible to be this obsessed over my bowels I know !!!

I'm not sure your question about feeling constipated when your not, do you mean that you get the pains associated with constipation? You are still considered constipated even if you are going a little and not having a substantial bm. If the stool is very dry that is also considered constipation. The Miralax is supposed to pull water into your stool. I also was taking 17grams/day mixed into something to drink.
