For Constipation: “On the 6th day God created man. On the 7th day, man created opiates. On the 8th, 9th, 10th day, and for many days after, I couldn’t poop. Thankfully, man had also created polyethylene glycol (PEG), which has become my holy sacrament. I had been taking magnesium, methylcellulose, docusate, Metamucil, and dulcolax. Oh yeah, and tons of prunes. I WAS SERIOUSLY PLUGGED UP! And nothing was working. My doctor prescribed PEG, and after three days, I hadn’t gone, so I also took four dulcolax, four docusate, and some magnesium. Then later that day, I had an experience in my bathroom that is described in the Old Testament only as, “the fear of god”. A voice seemed to say, “go now, or forever hold your peace!” An hour later, I was fine, and very relieved! I’ve resigned myself to take the PEG now as prescribed. So go forth, and spread the good word, PEG is worth the sacrifice! Bless you.”

MiraLax (polyethylene glycol 3350) for Constipation: “I’ve been addicted to opiates for a long time. I recently started methadone and it has caused constipation I’ve never experienced. The constipation has caused hemorroids and has made it very painful to go poop every time. Not to mention I am gay and the hemerroids have ruined my husband and I’s sex lives… But after my doctor recommended miralax I am so amazed and surprised at how regular I am… After only 7 doses I am back to normal and my hemorrhoids are almost gone. No more bleeding when I poop and no more pain. I’m so thankful.. Its kind of expensive but so worth it. I’m very thankful.”

For Constipation: “I’ve been extremely constipated after having my son. I would go once a week and when I would it would be extremely hard and tear me and tear me over and over. For 8 months now I almost passed out a few times. I tryed seena and other stool softeners my dr prescribed me. Miralax I drank it for 5 days and I just had my first bowel movement that was normal in about 8 months. I am so happy I had no pain at all – I would say this is a miracle drug ! I highly recommend it !!!!”

ClearLax (polyethylene glycol 3350) for Constipation: “Following horrific food poisoning, I became extremely constipated. Could not poop for roughly 2 weeks. I have IBS-C and ClearLax (polyethylene glycol 33350) is the only medication that has helped me. 3 days post taking ClearLax, I had a loose bowel movement that was smelly. But after I cut the amount of ClearLax from 17g to 10g, BM’s have been relatively normal. Side effects: queasiness after drinking ClearLax with water, rumbling stomach, excessive gas, and looser BM’s. there is a slight flavor to it, almost tastes like artificial cucumber. Highly recommend this product”
