He is correct, the fuller the stomach the more reflux issues and the longer the reflux will last. I am not a doctor, but I would think taking a laxative such as Miralax would help move things out of the colon quicker and not the stomach. With my delayed gastric emptying I would have to take Miralax at times because I could not eat much fiber since I was on the gastroparesis diet. However, drinking more liquids would always help the situation. If you have delayed gastric emptying make sure you are not taking the laxatives that have fiber in them like Metamucil.
