    I've been using Miralax every night since my constipation has gotten really bad... a couple years now. I take a dose a night and it seems to help. I try to eat foods with fiber too, of course. They advertise that it doesn't cause bloating but I do get gas every morning. The Miralax actually helps to relieve myself of that though. It definitely doesn't cause bloating like a laxative would. I would recommend this and I do for my friends, too. And the price on this web site was the best, plus no tax and free shipping totally rule.

    After scanning all the reviews here I see that I'm in the minority. Yes, Miralax works, but I stopped using it because of unpleasant side effects. I'm post menopausal and on a few meds both of which have really messed up my system. It's almost impossible to be delicate on this subject, so I'll just get to the point. I had very bad..and loud....grumbling and rumbling in my intestines. Also, while their website states that Miralax doesn't cause gas, I'm afraid it did for me. I could live with gas, except that this was different...it had an absolutely horrendous odor. I couldn't subject my family to it!! Also, I never felt clean...everytime I went to the bathroom, I would have to use 4 or 5 wet wipes. I tried experimenting with 1/2 dose everyday, or a full dose every other day, however, the product wasn't as effective when I did that, plus I still had side effects. I wish I could be like everyone else who didn't experience any issues because this product does do its job. One more interesting note...these side effects were always much worse at night, even when I took the Miralax earlier in the day. II'm not sure why. I stopped using Miralax for now and I'm trying more fiber plus a stool softener. Hopefully, I won't have any...or even as many...unpleasant side effects. I haven't ruled out trying Miralax again in the future though, partly because I have 2-1/2 bottles left and partly because I know it's safe to use longterm.

      Comments about MiraLAX Laxative, Powder For Solution, 17.9 oz:

      I take it every morning in a cup of juice. It keeps me totally "regular." It was a little too strong, so I reduced the dose a bit. I only fill the cap to about 1/8" from the top line. It is tasteless but smooth, so it doesn't change the flavor or texture of a drink. I've occasionally put it in tea, or just plain water, and it still works well.

      Comments about MiraLAX Laxative, Powder For Solution, 17.9 oz:

      I used to get bouts of diverticulitis - since I have taken the product - they have disappeared. I had constipation - that is gone. I asked my doctor how long I can take this product. His answer: "til the cows come home."
      I have been taking Miralax I believe for the last 5 years. My bowels are regular, I have no cramps. My last colonoscopy said: no polyps - I never had any.

        One of my prescription medications causes extreme constipation. I tried another product for relief, but it didn't work at all. I switched to MiraLax, which had been recommended by my physician, and found relief. I find it easy to take, effective, and with no bad side effects.

              My gastroentologist suggested Miralax over 5 years ago to relieve constipation and avoid bouts of diverticulitis. He assured me I can take it as long as I wanted to. This is the best medicine I have ever used. I dilute it in V8 juice, which I drink on a regular basis. I have no cramps, no belly aches, and absolute regularity.

                      My gastroentologist suggested Miralax several years ago for daily use. I had suffered from constipation and diverticular disease. Both problems have disappeared. This product is easy to use, causes no cramping, and works.

                          It works wonders.
