I need help with the whole enema thing if you ever done it.

I tried everything and I do mean everything on trying to go to the bathroom and then the dr told me to do the marlax which didn't work either. I don't know if I should call the dr ot try the enema first? But I was achually wanting to know if I do the enema then will I be in the bathroom all day? How often will I go that day? Will it make it where I wont be able to control it? How does that work? I haven't ever done one before.

  • Miralax takes time to work, so if you are in need now, an enema or even a suppository may be better. For an enema, they are supposed to work right away, so after you administer it, then hold it for the requisite amount of time, you should empty out in one sitting.

  • I loved my miralax, it worked wonders, use an enima and continue to take the miralax daily, it will help!

  • They work quickly and stop when you are cleaned out. Minutes not hours
