Miralax/diet: Depends on how often and how much Miralax you have been taking. Usually taken daily till you have regular/soft bowel movements. You can adjust how much/frequency based on your bowel movements. Also, eating high fiber foods and drinking water will help regular your stools/bowel movements. Please see your PCP if symptoms do not improve.
