Yes: Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is a non-systemic lavage agent that can safely be taken for extended periods of time without concern for dependency. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) has been used in patients with cathartic colon to improve colonic tone gradually while keeping the colon decompressed and empty.
