Re: dosage of miralax for a 8 year old

I was just giving this to my almost three year old. I just used about a 1/4 of the cap since the adult dose if up to the line on the cap. So I would start there and see if he needs slightly more.

Re: dosage of miralax for a 8 year old

my daughter is 12 and she's taking miralax aswell, i give her 17g twice a day. she's been taking this much since she was 10. so maybe you should try giving her the same amount..

Re: dosage of miralax for a 8 year old

Instructions on the Miralax bottle states for age 17 and older to take 17g. ONCE per day.

Remember, a person needs to drink plenty of water for Miralax to work. Not enouogh water and Miralax will cause constipation.

NY28.....Did a doctor prescribe 17g twice a day for your 12 year old daughter or is that what you decided she needed. If it is not per doctor instructions try backing off to 17g and drink more water.

I personally take Miralax and found insufficient water does not allow Miralax to work properly.
