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.

  • 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.

  • Pull yourself away from the computer, go into the kitchen, and measure a dose into the kitchen measuring spoons.

  • 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.

  • I have filled up the cap to the highest marking and found that to be the most effective. Other graduations also work.

  • 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.

  • you pour the powder only to the end of the white part of the lid not the whole lid. Is about 10 mls

  • 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.

  • Apologies. I do not have ready access to the answer to your question. But, I can think of reasons why one might need this information, so I needed to express an opinion in defense of your being allowed to ask the question without being "shutdown" or being ridiculed. There are uses for this product hat are not accommodated by the online or package information. My first experience with Miralax was on recommendation of my Veterinarian, I had to figure out the dosage that was best. Just as an approximatation, my guess is that each capful (recommended dosage) is about 2 tablespoons full. My first guess is that the small jar of 15 doses ( my guess of 30 Tablespoons full) would be a good place to start. This way, if you are mail ordering, you would have sufficient product on hand to begin. Since I need this in my household now on a semi-regular basis, if funds allow, I prefer to have sufficient quantities on hand in advance to prevent and respond to GI problems, animals or humans.

  • If you have kitchen measuring spoons or a measuring cup, I'm sure you can find the answer. I know that's what I would have to do.

  • The large size, but why would you need 11 tablespoons?

  • the one with the amount of doses you need on the bottle. I think this would be the small 15 dose pack

  • The cap of the bottle is the measurement of how much you need to take each time, so calculate how many times you are planning to take it and buy the closer size to that amount. Also I believe that if you look the bottle on the web site will tell you the different sizes how many times you can take it.
