Sorry I saw your post late. Miralax works well. Our son didn't go
because it would hurt. It hurt because he wouldn't go. It was a catch
22. Changing his diet didn't work. It wasn't until we tried Miralax
(as it just became available over the counter) did it kick in within 3
days. Now he goes all the time because it no longer hurts. The good
thing about Miralax is that it dissolves in liquids and has no taste
or odor, so our son takes it without any issue.

I am not associated with this product, but I am sick of seeing some
idiots treat a child's constipation issue as the same as an adult. The
stupid "just give them fiber" line just makes things worse!

Regards...

Actually, constipation has many causes. Not all cases in kids is
caused by the same thing. Ditto, adults. Each case must be death with
individually. There is no one cure for constipation in kids. Or in
adults.

That said, adding fiber and water to the diet often helps.

Worse how. What's your training in the matter??

Treatment of constipation by dietary changes is the preferred and most
conservative course whatever the age.
