Constipation and Parkinson’s.

My son didn't take polyethylene glycol 3350 (Miralax) related to Parkinson's, but sure did have terrible constipation when he was littler, more due to not getting a lot of fiber with his picky eating habits. The doctor prescribed an increase at one time which my mother-in-law warned me about. I figured that it was fine, but he had a definitely messy situation that could have been a real embarrassment. So, my observation is that slow changes might be wise.

Thank you Lisa! As you can see from my other replies, I have tried Miralax daily at my GI doctor’s suggestion, for numerous weeks from time to time. Very little if any relief. My stool is soft enough, not anything like diarrhea, even without the Miralax, but it just won’t come. I feel stuffed. Sounds strange, but I find myself wishing I had diarrhea from time to time. Sounds pretty sick to say this, doesn’t it.
