Best Time of Day to Take MiraLAX
People with occasional constipation may benefit from MiraLAX® (polyethylene glycol 3350). The recommended dose for treating occasional constipation is 17 grams (about one heaping tablespoon) of powder dissolved in four to eight ounces of liquid and swallowed once a day. But what is the best time of day to take MiraLAX?
You can take this laxative any time of the day, in the morning or evening. However, do not take a double dose or use more than one dose in a day unless your healthcare provider advises you to do so. If you forget to take your MiraLAX dose, take it later in the day. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skipped the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule.
