How often can i use Miralax?
I take 7 different medications and have constipation. My doctor recommended Miralax for 2 weeks. It worked great. But after the 2 weeks the constipation came back. I was wondering is it safe to take Miralax everyday to stay regular?

Yes, it's very safe and non-habit forming.  It is only a stool softener, so it can be used indefinitely.

My son's doctor has him take a dose daily and he is only 14. So it can be taken daily.

I wouldn't take it at all if I were you - it has a bad rep for addictiveness/side-effects.  See this link for more info:

How do you know it is safe long tern ? This is polyethylene glycol that your kidneys might not like long term.
