A member asked:

I am taking miralax every 3 days because of no bm..assuming that the miralax will work, how do i know when to stop or to reduce taking the miralax? should i also take benefiber or metamucil, or should miralax be enough for now?

MiraLAX : Adding fiber to your diet along with using supplements like Benefiber or Metamucil are very good for general colon health. In addition MiraLAX can be used on a daily basis until bowel movements are restored and then you can use it less frequently. B sure that you were having your regular colon cancer screening tests through your primary doctor. Daily probiotics over-the-counter also help.
