MiraLAX® Works with the Water in Your Body

MiraLAX® works with your body’s natural process to provide effective relief from occasional constipation. Because it works with the body, MiraLAX® provides a gentle experience and doesn't cause harsh side effects.

MiraLAX® Is Different from Stimulant Laxatives

Stimulant laxative pills make your body go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon. MiraLAX® works naturally with the water in your body to hydrate, soften and ease, unblocking your system.
