You would need to do a video consult with one of us HealthTap doctors for us to refill your medication. This consult would not be free but we are happy to help. You could also request the refill from the doctor who originally prescribed it. If you want a HealthTap doctor to refill it, request a video consult. We would be happy to help!! Good luck to you!!

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is now over the counter...no prescription needed! Go for it, good going! (Sorry for the bad pun).

It is not a prescription medication. You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For the long term you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods. Consult this site for fiber foods. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/high-fiber-foods/art-20050948 Wish you good health!
