Questions & Answers for Miralax MiraLAX Laxative Powder 17.9oz. 30 Dose

Question

The cap is dosage container?

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.

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.

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.

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.

answer 6
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

NO! :0) The only ingredient is: POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL 3350, an Osmotic Laxative. There is no fiber, wheat, sugar, or any other inactive ingredients = 0.
My gastroenterologist recommended it for daily use, forever! Super easy to use. It dissolves completely with no taste in liquid.

When you look at taking 4 dosages and then taking this product, it's a little different. Each item is measured different, so for you, make sure you look at what this item consist of and how much you can consume in a day, just to make sure that you are not over doing it.
