Is it okay to take dulcolax while on amoxicillin, it's the talc in the medication safe to consume?
Stool softener: Dulcolax is a stool softener. Some antibiotics, like amoxicillin, can cause diarrhea. I would not recommend taking them both. If there is talc, in a commercial medical product, I think it would be safe to use. You may want to consult your primary care physician regarding both. ...Read more

Is it possible to overdose on miralax (polyethylene glycol)? My doc told me to take it twice a day mixed with prune juice. Is this safe even if it says once on bottle?
Yes,I don't think so: I personally would not take MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) even once a day.
