Can you just put miralax (polyethylene glycol) on pancakes?

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I suppose you could if you wanted to. However, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) has no real taste and from what I have heard, it has no real texture. If you're trying to disguise the miralex, you might try putting in a liquid beverage you like. If you put it on pancakes, you may never want to eat pancakes again.

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): It is recommended that Miralax (polyethylene glycol) be mixed in 4 to 8 ounces of fluid.

Would it be advisable to use miralax (polyethylene glycol) for a few days..Just to see if I have stool that is not being eliminated?

If you have: No symptoms i would avoid that experiment. It is best not to train the bowels especially if you have no symptoms of distension, pain, constipation, or nausea. Eat a high residue diet, get plenty of exercise and drink a fair amount of water. Let your GI tract handle itself.

Is dose-dependent...: The more MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) you take the faster it works. As a once over-the-counter dosed laxative you may not see results for 3-4 days, but as a multi-dosed colonoscopy preparation (when used under doctor's advice) expect laxation within hours. As with any laxative however understand its mechanism of action, its risks, & treatment goals & make sure you are not missing obstruction, dysmotility, inflammation
