If i take miralax (polyethylene glycol) to stay regular will I have at least 2 poops everyday? Having only one bothers me, i always feel bloated. I prefer to take 2 or 3

In brief: Mix it up

You may want to try taking a different type of laxative.
You could try a stimulant laxative like senna or bisacodyl, or you could try taking a fiber supplement to help as well, although extra fiber can sometimes make people feel bloated if they take too much.

In brief: Stop taking medicine

Change your diet.
High fiber helps. Vitamin c helps. Drink more water.
