My doctor prescribed Miralax 2xd. That produced very soft stools. Then I took 26gr at bedtime, and the results were satisfactory, but interupted my sleep several times. I would like to time the dose so that the results will be while I am awake and alert.

It's difficult to say exactly how long it'll take as the result may vary between patients, on different diets, and may depend on how much fluid you take. So you may need to adjust the timings for yourself. It's good that it's working though.
