What's the correct Miralax dosage?


Answer by  TexasEm (311)

17 g (about one heaping Tbsp). The MiraLAX bottle cap is a premeasured dosing cup which you fill to the line and then dissolve into 4-8 ounces of liquid daily.

The correct dosage of Miralax is 17 grams - one heaping tablespoon - of powder in four to eight ounces of water. Patients should not take more than one dose each day.


Answer by  keepsmiling (648)

Miralax should be used as directed by your doctor. The proper instructions say you must dissolve one packet or cap full of Miralax, or 17 grams into 8 oz of water, juice, coffee, or even tea. This should only be taken once a day unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, never double up!

Dosage differs depending on your condition. Your doctor should recommend the dosage to you. Make sure not to use it for more than two weeks as it can upset the body's chemical balance and it may also lead to a dependency on laxatives.

Miralax, which is indicated for the relief of constipation, comes in powder form. The dosage is 17 grams, (about 1 heaping tablespoon), mixed with 4-8 ounces of water, per day.


Answer by  TJenkins602 (656)

The usual dosage of Miralax is 17 grams. It is the usual recommended dosage for people who suffer from constipation. It is a good short term treatment for the problem in the bowels. Of course if you take way too much of the medication you would suffer horribly from overdose related problems.
