The best time of day to take miralax is first thing in the morning. If you are taking it for constipation, then first thing in the morning will give you that extra push to get things moving again after a night’s sleep. If your constipation problem stems from an irregular bowel movement, try taking it at night and see if this helps.
How much should I take?
You can either start with one softgel or two tablets per dose or one tablet twice daily (morning and evening). For maximum benefit, we recommend starting with 1-2 capsules/day which may increase up to 4 capsules/day as needed. It is preferable that you consult your physician before changing any medication regimen; however, if necessary only change dosage by 1 capsule every 3 days until symptoms subside.
