miralax Question, has anyone taken this?
After battling constipation for over 3 1/2 weeks now and trying everything...i.e. Ex-Lax, mineral oil, fibercon drink, suppositories, the Dr. wrote me a prescription for Miralax and said to me this will work.. Has anyone taken this can tell me about the side effects...
She told me to take and mix a scoup of power to water and drink the glass.....then mix up another in 1/2 hour and drink another and if needed in 1 hour another.. she said this will work .. she said this is a stool softoner.. and will empty the bowels until nothing but diareha.. I had an ultrasound done today (why not sure) as it doesnt show the bowels... the ultrasound tech said was to examine the other organs such as kidneys, gall bladder, stomach ect.. but doesnt show the stool inide the bowels.. or obstructions....
The Dr. said my intenstion sounds normal after listening to it.. and doesnt think no blockages.. just severaly constipated... She said this Maralax will work.. and it is not a stimulant laxative and wont cause cramps..
Anyone taken this , how much have you taken ?? does this sound right to take so much.. she Dr. told me it can be taken daily if needed.. does it cause cramps?, bloating, gas?? how long before something happens.. willthe stool pass easily.... soft????? now I have developed a nice set of Hemoroids from all the crunting and pushing...the last many days.. Id like to hear some opinions from a few of you before I take this stuff tonight..
