My son is 6 1/2 and has been on miralax for several years and all it has done is softened his stool. He is still scared to poop he says it hurts. Our dr told us that some kids have to take it their whole life. He still poops and pees in his pull up at night. He will only sit on the toilet when we tell him to. I know this is not his fault and I will not listen to a dr who says he might be on it his whole life. I plan on starting him on fiber and magnesium(natural calm kids calm) immediately. We have been giving him one cap of miralax a day. Do you think I can cut the miralax out completely immediately? And do you think this could have caused permanent damage to my son?
