MiraLAX is a medicine used for the short-term treatment of constipation. However, in some cases, it is used for the long-term (chronic) constipation. Sometimes, MiraLAX is also used for colonoscopy bowel preparation.
In most of the cases taking MiraLAX causes a bowel movement within one two three days of taking it. A study was conducted to test its effectiveness focused on people who had not more than two bowel movements a week. As a result, it was found that MiraLAX increases the number of bowel movements 24.5 a week as compared to 2.7 in people who took a placebo.
This was followed by another study that found MiraLAX was able to successfully treat around 52% of people with chronic constipation. You have to mix this flavorless powder with 4 to 8 ounces of water, juices, or any other liquid. This powder comes in single-serving packs or bottles.
