I have been taking miralax for 3 days, had an xray before starting miralax, my intestines are full of stool. I have had very small bowel movements in the form of dark diarrhea, today they are pale and small like pebbles. Is this normal?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Miralax

Meds like Miralax will cause diarrhea.
As long as you are not having severe pain or inability to pass gas or stool, your symptoms are usually normal.
