Hi I have RA, so on prednisone, Celebrex , enbrel and percocet for pain. I have always had not normal bowel movements (ibs I think ) so now I get bad painful cramps followed by diareah. I've been told to take miralax every day. Has anyone else had this?
If it were me I would not take miralax everyday as one of the ingredients is polyethylene glycol which is antifreeze. In my opinion when I take any kind of med I don't want any type of toxins to be in it. These are my thoughts only and you should discuss concerns with your Dr.
I'm a 72 yr. young male, and I've been taking Miralax for several months and it really works well for me, at first I thought it wasn't going to give me any relief, then after 3 days, and on advise of my doctor I have continued taking a dose in the evening 3 to 4 times a week. I had painful stools, and now the pain is much less, unless I miss a dose. Be sure to ask your doctor, he would or should consider the medication your on. I take insulin, 4 injections a day, and on losarton 100mg and Amlodipine 10mg a day also, and I try to eat an ample amount of fiber and drink at least 8 cups of water a day.
