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.
