Wow, we don't talk much about
Miralax (mostly because most of the members here are IBS-D) but it has been brought up a few times today. :) I am one who takes it and have had success. This was after going through fiber therapy, zelnorm, stool softeners. Those either didn't work or had many side effects. I was scared at first when I heard it was a laxative but it is not a stimulant laxative so its not supposed to have long term adverse effects. I have cut down my BM lag time by over half and I go much easier now. You may get gassy at first but its not the trapped kind of gas, you will be able to release it. Please let us know what you decide.
