It can help move the gas that is there out more efficiently, but it cannot cause gas on its own.quote:Miralax causes extra gas for me.

So? Every effect that people report during clinical trials but must be listed as a side effect regardless of whether the drug actually caused it.quote:Miralax web site even list flautance as a side effect

Our knowledge of physiology tells us there is simply no mechanism by which Miralax can produce gas. Specific studies done by an independent lab demonstrated that in fact it does not.In a clnical trial, in general, the FDA requires that every symptom a person gets regardless of the cause and that even includes the condition they are being treated for must be reported. People who are the placebo can get the same symptom too, but if it is reported in the drug group, it must be listed.In addition, there is going to some amount of gas in everyone's gut. Miralax's goal is to push everything in the gut out, so if it does its job, it will push out this existing gas more efficiently making you falsely believe it is making gas that was already there.quote:If it caused some people gas in the trials, how can you say it CAN'T???
