... worried! I have been constipated for 4 days and felt like I wanted to flush my system so I began flushing my body with water and fruit and veggies but no bowel motion.
dcran66; if nothing happens by morning call your doctor. You need to start reading labels I don't know what size bottle of Miralax you took all in one day but Miralax is to be taken as directed on the bottle or by the doctors order and in most cases you take a glass of Miralax daily and it takes about 3 days to work but not the whole bottle. So to be safe call your doctor in the morning and ask what you should do now If your bowels are not working by then. More of any medication does not mean better. Miralax is a very strong laxative but so it does not work like overnight it is to be used as directed by the doctor or the bottle. So please call your doctor as soon as you can tomorrow. chuck1957
