Reduce dose of miaralx to half
Thank you for getting back with the answers. I have gone through them. Yes there is high probability that diarrhea has been caused by miralax. I would suggest you to reduce its dose to half and observe. If everything goes smoothly then continue using the half dose. Meanwhile i would suggest you following things:
- Take lots of fluids( water, juices)
- Include fresh fruits & vegetables in your diet.
- Go out for jogging in the evening for 30-45mins. It will keep you healty & fresh.
- Avoid sugar related products. They will worsen diarrhea.
Hopefully you will see improvement in 2-3 days. If condition remains same or aggravates then you need to visit hospital.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
