Six months ago I had a colonoscopy and it was ok and my doctor told me to take MIralax for my cronic constipation and that it would be alright to take it every day,which I do.I also take five different meds for high blood pressure and cholosterol and synthroid. Lately, I have been having turns of nauesea and wonder if its to do with daily Miralax usage. I'm a 78 year old woman and slightly overweight. Please advise if you will. Thank you,respectfully, Mrs.G.
