Hi guys, i know i have posted alot and you are probably sick of me already (i hope not) but i just wanted to say thank you for all your support and help. I think I would have gone crazy with unanswered questions if it wasnt for you guys. But now i have two questions, the last two until i am diagnosed or cleared. One today i had the pain and it kinda radiated a little down into my right leg, not sure if it was because of my feet hurting from standing? Second, would it take any of the effect of the miralax away if i mix it in the morning and refrigerate it in the morning so that it is really cold when i drink it or am i better to wait until drinking time.

Please think of me while i am crapting out my intestines

We're not sick of you...don't ever for one second assume that. I hope you continue to post here :)

I would assume it's from standing...but I can't really say much. I just hope you get something definitive from your doctor.

I don't know what happens if you mix Miralax with liquid and then chill it for a period of time. It could turn into a blob or then again it might not. You could run an experiment, and mix some with water and then refrigerate it for the period of time you desire. Then you can see what happens. If there is a reason you don't want to to that, why not just refrigerate the liquid and then mix it in - it won't raise the temperature of the liquid that much and should still be really cold. I mix mine with really cold liquids, Mine has no flavor and dissolves really well.

I mix my miralax with hot tea and drink it that way. It is so soothing to my tummy when prepping for a colonoscopy. Just thought I would share.

My daughter mixes her miralax with cold drinks like juice once in awhile, but it takes slightly longer to dissolve. It doesn't seem to alter the miralax and since it has no taste, it doesn't affect the juice either.
