The dosage is to be poured in the white of the cap. Is that correct. How much is that really. Is that about a tablespoon full? The cap is rather huge and I am concerned that I might use to much of the product.

  • A. you fill to the white of the cap and dissolve in at least 8 ounces of water and give it a minute after a vigorous stir so its dissolved and you will notice only water taste--I do not like it in coffee

  • A. Yes, to the top of the inner cap equals a single dose. As for the rest of your question, you can find the answer by using your kitchen measuring spoons.

  • A. My daughter has used it daily for 10 years ( she is under 5 ft tall and 75 pds), sometimes twice a day without any issues and this was prescribed by her GI doctor. This product was prescription until about 7 years ago and cheaper now that it is OTC.

  • A. The cap isn't as big as it looks. You won't be using too much...or if you find it is, you can cut back to half cap.

  • A. Only pour it to the top of the white. Not sure of actual amount. Seems like about 2 or 3 tablespoons. If you use the cap then you will not use too much. For occasional constipation use as directed. to maintain an even flow use half the amount daily.

  • A. miralax is a stool softner and bulk former by increasing water in stool but you have to increase your water and bulk intake to give it the tools to work with it does not chemically stimulate the bowel like traditional laxitives. It should take 1-3 days before you notice a result and you need to take it daily. A bowl of fiber rich cereal and about 64 ounces of water a day should help to do this along with the miralax.

  • A. Unlike many other laxative products that have a rapid harsh effect with a gas build up or explosive bowel movements, MiraLAX is gentle and smooth in how it creates liquid into the bowel for easy, smooth bowel movements.

  • A. This could be a pamphlet. I will keep it brief. This synthetic one works well for me, with fewest if any negative side effects. I am also coping with IBS, Multiple (long list) food allergies including wheat allergy and sensitivities, and lactose & suspected gluten intolerance. The psyllium husk type laxative causes me great GI pain and distress, and has an unpleasant taste and gritty texture. The stimulant types cause me significant GI pain and painful cramping and can bring explosive diarrhea and soiling. You will have to try and decide for yourself. I recommend this one as my go to option. The only other one that rates this high for me is for CRISIS circumstances, I pull out generic bottles of Magnesium Citrate.

  • A. This one WORKS!!!!!!! My daughter is disabled and she has used it for 10 years now. Added bonus is that it has no flavor, you can add to any beverage and it works next day. It is a mild laxative and my daughter doesn't suffer through any pain or cramping like she has with the other brands.

  • A. I don't know, as I have only tried MiraLax. It was given to me when I was recovering from an operation and that's how I got started. It's been ages since I've needed a laxative but in the "old days" I used Senecot very successfully, when needed

  • A. I have used MiraLAX for over 4 years and always take it as directed in the morning mixed in with my coffee and use it twice a week. It has no after taste and has no effect on the liquid you mix it with, i.e. water, coffee, soft drink.

  • A. As soon as I know I need it. The longer I wait, the more severe and painful the symptoms can get. Most won't need this, but if you do : If you might swing from severe constipation to severe diarrhea and incontinence, I suggest wearing an adult diaper to prevent leakages and accidents. Again, most are unlikely to need this precaution with Miralax. But , You know YOUR body and if you might need to be prepared, just be prepared.
