Miralax (Polyethylene glycol 3350) increases the amount of water in the intestinal tract to stimulate bowel movements. It usually works within 1 to 3 days of using the medication. Polyethylene glycol 3350 normally causes loose or even watery stools.
Colace is a stool softener.It works by helping fat and water into the stool mass to soften
The only way you will find out which works better is to try the MiraLax.
