Miralax is essential for me, but I am diagnosed as IBS with a "loopy" colon. My Gastroenterologist has me on Linzess 290 mcg daily, after trying the 145 mcg dose. It is helping to some extent, but I have had problems with constipation for as long as I can recall. I take the Linzess in the morning, and use at least one dose of Miralax a day. I also take the probiotic Culturelle,yet still find the need to use a bottle of sodium phosphate occasionally. The only true solution for me is to remove the "loopy" part of the colon, and the doctors won't go there yet. I'm 63 and do take an opiate, but I am tapering off that, which might help. Good luck to you!
