I have a long QT I haven't felt well lately. Rapid hear beat, light headed, weak, etc. I am trying to figure out what is causing it. I was put on Miralax after surgery. Please tell me your symptoms. TY
Hi. My son is 21 months has seizures and is taking Kepra. Recently, we had to try Miralax for constipation and can't help but to at least question, could Miralax be making his seizures more frequent and a lot worse? Does anyone have any info that could help us? Thanks
Hi. Just want some resolution and advice. The linzess 145 mcg works great but if I poop later that day the movement is harder to pass so I started to take the miralax again to hopefully keep the stools soft in the evening. No problems at all in the morning just the evening if I have to poop again.
