I have been using this now for over 5 years. It works as well as well Miralax and cost less. You need to take it at the same time daily to get the maximum results. I take it in the morning . A cap full of powder with an 8 oz. glass of water. I don't have any problem getting it down. It does not have any taste other than like a lightly salted water. Eat a breakfast of shredded wheat or wheat bran before taking it. This adds bulk which is important. If your stools become too soft or liquid back off to a half cap for a day or two. When you first begin taking it don't get discouraged. It probably won't help with abowel movment for about 3 days. Once it begins, don't leave it off. Take a dose daily, even if you miss taking it at your regular time. It may make you have a little gas at times. If so try taking the Equate generic GasX. After a little time your body will adjust to this. I am an 83 year old man and suffer from chronic constipation. This has been a life saver for me. ,

A life saver for this 83 year old man.
Cost analysis and job performance--Equate wins!
Cost effective I compared generic brands at CVS and here and found Equates to be cheaper. Still no where as reasonable as Costco, but cheaper than CVS. The product works as well as Miralax, so don't spend that extra money for name brand when Equate does the job just as well!
Give it a try!
I have struggled with constipation for years. The expensive prescription drugs didn't work. A capful of this with some bran flakes in the morning does the job.
You can regulate the consistency of your bowel by learning what size dose to take. I take it the day before I go, in my morning coffee. It's tasteless and dissolves completely. My bowels move the next morning.
No taste, dissolves quickly, and is effective. Before I started taking this laxative, I had two intestinal blockages and a ruptured colon. When my colon was reconnected, I learned about Clearlax (chemically the same as Miralax), and it helps me manage problems much more effectively.
