In brief: Yes

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) works by absorbing water from the colon allowing it to move easier through the bowel and pass the stool.
It probably needs to be taken daily to be effective . It is not like milk of magnesia or citrate of mnagnesia, which should only take few hours to be effective. There is no problem tacking it during the day. Make sure you take it with at least 8 ounces of water or juice.
