All I can find is the caution about taking Miralax when one has kidney disease. But, I can find no specific reason for the recommendation against taking it. Help.

MiraLax is safe to take if you have kidney disease.
Respectfully to suzanne66, on a 4.1 oz. bottle of MiraLAX, as of April 2013, it states under WARNINGS: "Do not use if you have kidney disease, except under the advice and supervision of a doctor." Also, see: http://www.miralax.com/pdf/MiraLAX_ProductLabel.pdf for the same warning by the manufacturer.
