Initially after my surgery i took miralax every single day for about a month, then i started to skip a day and gradually took less and less. It has been several months now since i had to use it. I am told that miralax is safe to take every day for as long as you need it as it is not a laxative. good luck
I added 1 Tablespoon to my protein shake daily for a few weeks until I was able to eat more solid foods. I did not take a full dosage unless I was having problems. I just wanted to stay regular.
