My "miracle" Miralax is causing severe bloating, rashes, and hives. Like many of you, I am at the end of my rope. Everything I try either causes bloating or gas. Anybody have any options for me.

Can you do magnesium supplements, magnesium oxide from the dietary supplement aisle?Some people find a couple of tablespoons of flax oil or olive oil (plain without food) can help them go.Some people end up going from the other end and a warm water enema can get things going.

I'd say if your getting rashes and hives, your allergic to the Miralax and I'd stop taking it. Your body is trying to tell you something. I've read about a few people who've had allergic problems from Miralax.MaryAnn

I just finished a new Blog @ Screeb's Blog called Explanation of Gas Elimination Procedure using cervical traction. It seems that bloating and gas distension cause constipation in C-IBS. Basically, the cervical traction stimulates the vagovagal circuit, causing CCJ (cecocolonic junction) and proximal colon contraction, causing a movement of flatus. I've been using cervical traction since 1989 and this explanation is the shortest and most simplified of all of them (only about one page).

I have found the amount of MOM or magnesium supplements I need to use it way over the limit and gives me side effects too. Thanks for your help.
