Has anyone tried MiraFiber from the makers of MiraLax for IBS-C? If so, have you had any side effects from it? It says on the label that it may cause choking if you don't take the pill form with enough water. Also possibly nausea, vomiting, etc.

I've not tried MiraFiber, but I did take the regular MiraLax for about two weeks. I stopped because of the side effect you mentioned -- pretty much an all-day, low-grade nausea. I called my GI's office and told them about it, and their basic remark was that if it didn't work at the regular dosage to half it, and if that didn't work, to stop it. As far as that went, I was feeling nauseous due to my bowels before I was taking it, and nauseous on the MiraLax. So I don't take it at all any more.

I've been using something more old-guard: a cup of prune juice at night, but that comes with its own problems: a heavy, dull ache in my bowels, even though my bowel movements seem regular and not hard, lumpy pieces.
