Anyone use Miralax?
I had a colon resection in April because of diverticulosis, then developed a stricture at the surgery site, and am doing my best to keep from being constipated. All the fiber works, but is giving me loads of gas, and if I am unable to drink as much water as needed with all the fiber, things get difficult again,, if you know what I mean.
So a friend of mine (who is pretty young, about 35ish) told me about Miralax.
She swears by the stuff, says she uses it daily and never has a problem. She used to get the prescription stuff, but guess it is now OTC, and she couldn't be happier. She told me she used to do the yo-yo dieting stuff and now her peristaltic action is no longer working. Anyhow...she tried to tell me that Miralax is not harmful to the body...no chemicals or drugs. But I questioned why was it prescription before then???
Anyone out there got any info....I checked at their website, but of course they aren't gonna tell me it's dangerous??!!! I could use some help!
