Can I boil Miralax?

I have to drink a ton of Miralax for a colonoscopy. I noticed that I can drink tea. Can I boil the Miralax to make tea?
erice_ma responded:
Possibly too late since you had it for a specific date, but I think the answer is no. The active ingredient, polyethylene glycol 3350 breaks down in dry heat much less than the boiling point of water. It also undergoes a phase change (from solid to liquid) at about 133 degrees. So, it seems likely that it would not be the same product if it was boiled.
