People with occasional constipation may consider taking MiraLAX® (polyethylene glycol 3350). This nonprescription (over-the-counter, or OTC) laxative works by drawing water into the colon, softening the stool, and increasing the frequency of bowel movements.
MiraLAX comes in powder form and is dissolved in any hot, cold, or room-temperature beverage, such as water, juice, coffee, or tea. It is typically taken once a day and usually causes a bowel movement in one to three days. However, do not take this laxative for more than seven days without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
