Lot of miralax (polyethylene glycol): Regurgitating too much miralax (polyethylene glycol) is not uncommon if the stomach gets overloaded and cant handle the volumn injested. I prefer GoLightly which adsorbs fluid into the small bowel and secondarily cleanses the colon. In spite of everything I still suggest a Fleet enema before going for the procedure.
