User Comments about Miralax
20 Jan 2012 helps to quickly relive occasional constipation quite well, however even though they say it wont give you gas it does.

10 Oct 2010 I like this medication because it helps with my constipation and it does not have any negative side effects. Sometimes it does not work as effectively as I would like, or as quick.

02 Jul 2010 I was prescribed this medicine because I was having issues with constipation. I didn't like the taste that much but it helped with the problem. I saw good results after 1 glass and I really enjoyed that.

26 Jun 2010 I needed to take it for a colonoscopy I was having done. It tastes horrible even in my favorite Gatorade drink. But the most important thing is that it worked. I was completely clean for the colonoscopy.
