Regina,

 

It is not recommended that you take miralax twice in one day. The drug information on Miralax from our partner site healthsquare.com indicates that it may take up to 2-4 days for Miralax to start working.

 

In addition, caution should always be used when taking a laxative. Overuse can teach your body to rely on these medications eventually contributing to your constipation. For more information read our information guide on constipation.
