My doctor prescribed Miralax 2xd. That produced very soft stools. Then I took 26gr at bedtime, and the results were satisfactory, but interupted my sleep several times. I would like to time the dose so that the results will be while I am awake and alert.

I am taking Lactulose and it works well for me. My doctor wonders why I would always need it. Miralax doesn't work for me. Is there anything OTC that is comparable to Lactulose so that I don't have to depend on a doctor to get the help I need? Thanks

I have a 12 year old granddaughter with chronic constipation. She hates taking the powder and I think the pill form might be better. Her doctor ordered Miralax powder daily and if she misses a dose her stools are so hard and large she has pain and difficulty having a bowel movement.
