... his body to go every Mon, Weds, Friday like clockwork & we wouldnt want the Miralax to kick in at any other random time. He takes 2 Colace everyday for the last 10 years, but we wouldnt mind finding something that worked better. I noticed that the Miralax stated that there is "watery bowels"..not needed thank you
Miralax (Polyethylene glycol 3350) increases the amount of water in the intestinal tract to stimulate bowel movements. It usually works within 1 to 3 days of using the medication. Polyethylene glycol 3350 normally causes loose or even watery stools.
Colace is a stool softener.It works by helping fat and water into the stool mass to soften
The only way you will find out which works better is to try the MiraLax.
