Four days in, one bottle of Miralax consumed. Results – not so much…
I started out on Monday taking 2 doses of the Miralax. One in the morning and one in the evening. I have to admit that I was a bit frightened because other laxatives have a pretty powerful effect on my system. They usually cause cramping and an urgency to get to the toilet – FAST. So when taking the Miralax, I was pretty convinced that it would be the same old story. According to the bottle, Miralax should not cause bloating, gas or any of these other issues, but I feel like all of them say that. They also say “gentle, predictable relief”. Yeah, if by predictable you mean that you might explode from 2-12 hours later whilst in the middle of a shopping mall, then sure.
Day 1 – Nothing
Day 2 – Nothing. Drank tons of water.
Day 3 – Nothing. Doc said to “double down” on the dosage. Up’d to 4 doses.
Day 4 – Some gurgling in my gut.
So I sit here waiting. In the meantime, I have discovered that people are far weirder than I am and actually make youtube videos about Miralax. I am totally confused by this.
