Is it safe to take miralax (polyethylene glycol) and colace twice a day during pregnancy? My body got used to taking it once a day. I'm 27 weeks & have to be on 60mg of iron.

In brief: Maybe

Both MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) and colace are considered category c drugs, indicating that their safety during pregnancy is unknown.
However, I am sure that most obstetricians have used them with impunity. Make sure that you check with your OB before using them.
