Miralax, linzess, amitiza, lactulose, psyllium and glycerin suppositories don't work. Abdominal/pelvic CT normal. What can I do? Always constipated.
Scheduled for colonoscopy but afraid magnesium citrate won't clear my colon. Docqulace and bisacodyl failed to evacuate colon. Will the citrate work?
AlwaysAGuess; agent,: dose & response relationships with all the usual complex individual variables.

Can miralax (polyethylene glycol) change caliber of stool? Am being treated for constipation. Before miralax (polyethylene glycol) calibur was normal - with miralax (polyethylene glycol) stools are slow and thin.
