User reviews to the study

- I have been using a generic Miralax daily for about 4 years now, and have recently developed tiny red spots on my lower legs. I take no the medication on a regular basis, and I have no other symptoms, so I am wondering if this could be a reaction to the Miralax.
- Anyone taking Miralax experiencing neuropothy symptoms in their feet? Burning & tingling in their toes?
- I have used miralax for at least 1 and 1/2 years. Could itching be attributed to using miralax before bedtime? I am over 80 years old.
