Customer Question
I took miralax 3...

I took miralax 3 days ago and have been frequently going to the bathroom, urinating. Especially at night

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I have Crohn's disease and last year I had a bad case of constipation. The doctor told me to take miralax every day. Well I was taking the generic version for about 6 months then stopped for about a month and half. 3 days ago I took the real miralax and have been urinating very frequently

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My gallbladder is removed

Any burning on urination?

No burning. Female

No chance of being pregnant. Not sexually active
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

And have you ever had this happen before?

Can I assume you aren't diabetic?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Never has happened before. Not diabetic
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

This isn't from the Miralax

But it may be a urinary tract infection even if there's no burning on urination

Those can often clear on their own after a few days and for now I'd suggest some oral probiotics for it

But if this goes on for two or more days from now you need to see your doctor for a urinalysis and a course of antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.

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.
