Question about Miralax Powder Laxative, 14 Dose

1 Answer

How do I covert 17 grams Miralax (generic) powder to tablespoons, please.

I cannot see the measuring line in the cup, so I am concerned about getting too much or not enough of the powder. Each cap contains 17grams of powder; I would like a surer way to get the amount I am to take.

Sounds like you answered your own question. I one cap will hold 17 grams then just use one cap full. If you take a little extra it should not be a problem. I prepped for a colonoscopy using Miralax and the doctor had me take a whole bottle of Miralax in Gatoraid in two doses one hour apart and it did not cause any problems (except I spent a lot of time in the bathroom!). As a guess I would say two or three tablespoons would be about 17 grams.

Yes, there in inequality in the world. Your good old Aussie measuring spoons used for stirring your tea, as just that, an implement for stirring tea. Measurement wise, they are based on UK spoons, because you all came from the UK in the early days of colonisation.

The Americans, did things their way and used the 'Cup' as a measure, because in the cowboy days, everyone on a wagon train had a mug or a cup. If the whole recipe is in Cups, it doesn't matter if the cup is the size of an elegant coffee cup, or a 1 pint enamel mug, because the ratio was always the same.

The best way is electronic scales and measure in quarter grams.

How Many Grams in ! Tablespoon of a Powdered Laxative - Bottle Directions says not to take more than 17 Grams a day

Because you don't know the density of the powder and no table spoon has the same volume you can't know how many grams go in a table spoon.
Unless you use a very precise scale to measure one table spoon, you never will know.

I need to take 238 gm = to what in cups

You are talking about PEG-3350 powder, brand name Miralax but available in generic brands now, too. You've been told to use it for a clean-out prep for surgery or colonoscopy, right? The label says 238 Gms is en entire 8.3 oz bottle. But if you are struggling to read the label, which specifies that a cap filled to the line marked inside is equal to the recommended daily dose for constipation (17 Gms), then you should have been given a prep kit prescribed by a doctor, or told to have the pharmacist help you. The kit has a container with the powder, flavor packets, and the same electrolytes in the Gatorade, formulated to protect you from becoming too dehydrated or depleted of minerals by the process. An overdose of this could be serious--even very dangerous if taken by a child or elderly/fragile person--and yet an under-dose will leave you not fully washed out, so your exam may be useless or be cancelled.

Conversion grams to cups

If you have to ask this you need the pharmacist's help. Go to the counter and show him or her your written instructions from your provider. Most of these bottles come in a 8.3 oz size, which is 238 Gms. They also have a lid with dose markings inside, for a 17 or 34-Gram dose. If you've been told to take 328 grams at once, then you should have been prescribed a prep kit which has, yes, the same clean-out powder, but pre-measured, with a mixing container, safety instructions, flavor packets, minerals to protect you from dehydration, etc. Anyone who prescribed this instead of the standard kit was showing off their knowledge that the powder is the same, rather than thinking of your safety. The prep kit is safer for most people, and may not be more expensive, either, especially if you buy the brand name MiraLax!
