In brief: Diarrhea
Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is a rather gentle laxative.
I should not cause diarrhea, nor certainly bleeding. If you have these issues you need to recheck with your gastroenteroligist.

In brief: Helps bowels
Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is used to get the bowels moving when you are constipated, so it could cause diarrhea.
Check with your doctor about this.
