Re: dosage of miralax for 3 year old

Depending on what the problem is you are treating!
What did the doctor say?
Dosage can be anything between 1 scoop (17 grams, or 1 tablespoon) in 4oz fluids twice a day, to half a scoop in 8oz once a day, to even more or less than that...

Re: dosage of miralax for 3 year old

I was told to give my 1.5 yr old dd half a cap full for 8 oz and if it didnt work within a few hrs give her more. That you can not overdose on this stuff, the most it will do is give you the runs.

Well.... if you'd take enough (read A LOT) you'd run the risk of getting dehydrated and so I would be a bit careful if you are treating a little kid!

Re: dosage of miralax for 3 year old

My 4 year old takes 1/2 capful in 8 oz of liquid a day.. If you are using it on your own and not by a doctors orders, I would start out with 1/4 cap full in 8 oz liquid every day and if that doesnt work in a few days, Id up it to 1/2 cap
