How Long did you take Miralax?

Postby Mommaof1 » 29 Jun 2014, 07:45

Hey all! im starting a new thread in response to my previous "surgery in 3 days!" one. I am 2 1/2 weeks post LIS and in the same boat as before. I can't get off this laxative without causing hard stools and re-tearing. How long did you take it straight before you were able to get off of it? Or rather...how long have you been on it? I really NEED to find an alternative as I am TTC and I don't want to be taking it while pregnant.

Had to look up TTC=Trying To Conceive :)

I think the best person to ask about this is your doctor. I use Milk of Magnesia, but I am not TTC.

A lot of conflicting information out there.

Could you switch to colace? I believe that is safe to take when pregnant.

Colace
Magnesium
Miralax - godsend
Nitro - some improvement
LIS (May 2014) - cured for 3 months then setback
Diltiazem
