MiraLAX works with your body’s natural process to provide effective relief from occasional constipation. Because it works with the body, MiraLAX provides a gentle experience, and doesn't cause harsh side effects.
MiraLAX is different from stimulant laxatives. Stimulant laxative pills make your body go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon. MiraLAX works with the water in your body to hydrate, soften, and ease, unblocking your system naturally. Use as directed.
