Can your stools turn clay colored from daily use of miralax (polyethylene glycol) and probiotics?

Stools get much of their natural color from bile that comes from the gall bladder to help digest fats. Clay colored stools mean there is a lack of bile in the stools. Since neither Miralax (polyethylene glycol) nor typical probiotics cause stools to lack bile, it is most likely a coincidence that one's stool turns clay-colored while using Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and probiotics. One still has to see her doctor to fine the cause.
