I was diagnosed with diverticulosis about two years ago, about one year ago I had to be hospitalized with diverticulitis. My gastro put me on Miralax, and I have been taking it for 5 mo now. Recently I am feeling bloated, abdominal pain and nausea. Is it possible that Miralax have been causing these effects?
