Hi Carol,

From what I could gather, there are no official statements from the manufacturer concerning the expected shelf life of MiraLax. However in many cases I've investigated, the listed expiration date on medications of many types are not necessarily an accurate representation of a product's resilience to degradation overtime. Therefore I'd recommend contacting the makers of MiraLax (at 1-800-647-2529) to see if they can provide more specific details.

This topic is also being discussed in the following thread here (though I'd imagine that its efficacy may also depend upon storage conditions): Discuss/can-you-use-miralax-after-the-expiration-date-254916.htm

I hope this helps!

I am supposed to start iron pills which will give me constipation. I had a gastric bypass in 1999, and I have had three bowel obstructions in that time, all within the last 5 years. I am supposed to start taking the iron pills until I can have the IV infusion. The doctor said if I have another bowel obstruction I will have to have surgery. And being in the hospital with a tube in your nose to your stomach for days is very uncomfortable. I found a bottle of Miralax in my cupboard that expired and 05 2015. Does anyone know if it will still be effective. I really like the Miralax product but it's very expensive. So I am wondering if this is okay to take. Otherwise I will wait on taking the iron pills. But someone did give me a number for the company that makes Miralax so I will give them a call but it is a weekend and I don't think they will be open. But I will still try so I thought I would give you guys a chance to answer if I do not reach anyone. Thank you!
