I am sorry you are constipated.

you should keep using the miralax daily and keep using the fleet suppository twice a day

and drink more water and fluids and gadorade

if you are dehydrated, the miralax and suppositories don't work as well.

you should do the miralax and suppositories twice a day until you get your bowels to move.

It says once a day on the package
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

well, it is not working for you

you are still constipated.

so I would use it twice a day until you fix your constipation

can you drink more fluids and gadorade?

but does it have something to do with the detox? In the past this regimen has worked
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What would a the hospital do?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

at the hospital, they would give you IV fluids and can also order fleet enemas and miralax

a nurse can also help dis-impact you with a gloved finger and some lubricant to help get your stools to start moving.

most likely your detox and taper down on your valium and xanax is not causing this constipation issue.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
