A 34-year-old female asked:

Is miralax (polyethylene glycol) safe during pregnancy? i used it prior to pregnancy, as i have cronic constipation, but i am reluctant to use it now that i am pregnant.

Yes it is safe: Miralax (polyethylene glycol) remains in the gut & is not absorbed into the body, so can safely be used in pregnancy.
