My Gastro DR recommended a double dose about 12 hours apart because he diagnosed my BM problems as Constipation. My BM's have never been hard but difficult and more soft than hard. I followed his advise for 2 days--- 2 capfills a day--- and on the second day, I developed increasingly severe diarrea and painful gas. I assume the cause of my present gastro discomfort is an intestinal reaction to the increased Miralax. I want to follow Dr'd orders but if this gastro problem is a result I must not continue. Can a double dose over a 2 day period be the cause my current gastro problem? If so, how long will it remain in my digestive tract before the diarrea will end?
You can take something like gas x for the gas, let up on the Miralax you can adjust it to how you need it.
