hey everyone- i'm new to the group... was reading about miralax but now can't find the posts to reply to one so i started a new one. just wondering what the benefit of miralax over magnesium is? they both draw water to your intestines and soften the stool. magnesium also benefits your heart. i have to take LOTS of mag each day and have been prescribed miralax but am trying to decide what to do. i take lots of supplements and herbs but no "pharmaceuticals" so to speak. i take such high doses of magnesium that i'm kind of wondering if there are any long term side effects... any ideas anybody? thanks in advance.
