Hi PN :-)

I'm so pleased to hear that bupe is helping! Please continue to post how you're doing :-)

>For the constipation, I'm doing Miralax, milk of magnesia (only 1 week, I know), lots of water, a high-fiber diet...

If you're on MiraLax, adding Milk of Magnesia probably isn't necessary. MiraLax and Milk of Magnesia are both osmotic laxatives: they work in the same way. Opioid-induced constipation usually requires a 'stimulant' laxative such as standardised senna extract, sodium picosulfate or bisacodyl. Don't be afraid of 'stimulant' laxatives. Despite the bad press they've received, few people run into problems with them. MiraLax + a stimulant laxative is an excellent combination.

Warm regards

Ed
