Not sure. I do know my poor 6 year old grandson gets it from his mom. 😡He has been having bowel issues since he was born. I’ve tried to get them to take him to a GI they won’t listen to anything i say😢
Miralax takes a few days to work. Once you find the right amount to take for you it's great. I take half a dose every day.
You can try Fleet glycerine suppositories. They work in about 15-30 minutes and no need to worry about ingesting medications if you are afraid of systemic effects.
You need to tell them to google "Mothers against Miralax" asap!!. It is a large group of parents that gave their children Miralax for constipation (doctors orders) and it turns out a lot of the children developed bad side effects and developmental problems. Please tell them to at least look into this. There are civil lawsuits against the manufacturers of this product for not add warning labels for young children!
Good luck. I hope your grandson stays well.
Hi, I take Miralax (ClearLax - generic from amazon much cheaper ) everyday too since 2003. My Gastro gave it to me back then for IBS-C. It does work really well with helping to have normal BM with no bloating.
But I often wonder what the long term effects are, if any, it may have on the body or organs since its made with Polyethylene Glyco. There is actually a forum on here called "Mothers against Miralax for children". It makes me wonder if Miralax is really as safe as the doctors say for adults.
What are your thoughts on this?
