Parents: MiraLAX Causes “Neuropsychiatric Problems” in Children

Does polyethylene glycol cause mental health problems in kids?

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

The laxative product MiraLAX seems harmless enough. Doctors recommend it and it can be purchased over-the-counter at any pharmacy. It’s not the sort of product you would think could cause serious mental problems in children, but many parents claim such side effects are real; they’ve seen it with their own eyes.

Under certain conditions, PEG 3350 degrades into ethylene glycol or diethylene glycol. If any of those sound familiar to you, it’s probably because they’re toxic ingredients found in antifreeze.

The FDA said in its grant description:

“The Food and Drug Administration has received a number of reports of adverse events in children taking PEG products. The Agency has conducted a review that documented a number of reports of neurological and psychiatric events associated with chronic PEG use in children. A number of these pediatric patients received an adult dose of PEG (17 grams) for a duration ranging from a few days to a couple of years.” [1]

The FDA has found 167 cases of adverse side effects in children who took MiraLAX, including 37 kids who displayed neurological or psychiatric problems. Although the agency won’t discuss its findings thus far, it says it has determined that there is “insufficient data to demonstrate a link between PEG 3350 and serious neuropsychiatric issues in children.” [1], [2]

But parents say they know MiraLAX ruined their children’s live, and have been speaking out on social media about the devastating side effects they claim their child experienced after using the product.
