GreetingsWelcome to the site. If you are having severe constipation which is not relieved using miralex then what you can do is try 2 - 4 capsules of Dulcolax pico with glass of hot milk, initially taking 2 capsules together at night before going to bed . Other than this you shall eat papaya fruit and drink lots of water and if this also does not work then you may add lactulose solution, two teaspoonful at bedtime, the second day. But i feel the need for adding lactulose solution may not arise and dulcolax will alleviate your constipation.I hope this helps.Wish you speedy relief. Please kindly leave a POSITIVE RATING if you are satisfied with the answer. Regards
