Reviews for Magnesium oxide

For Constipation: "I am taking digestive advantage constipation formula which has 400 mg of magnesium oxide. It is absolutely the only thing that has ever helped me with constipation and never cramps and is completely reliable daily. The best thing ever. I am sure plain Magnesium oxide 300 mg would do the same if they should stop making this. This has been a Godsend now for a year and a half. Like clockwork..."

For Hypomagnesemia: "I started this medicine at the suggestion of my D.O. as my magnesium levels were very low and I had bad leg cramps. It did help the cramps quite a bit and my blood levels did return to normal. However, I began to have bad bouts of nausea and vomiting and occasional diarrhea that I had to take additional medication to stop. I took 400 mg but was never advised to take it with food. "

For Constipation: "I came upon this website as I was looking for different uses of magnesium oxide (MO); my initial reason for taking MO was for nerve pain, but I found it very interesting that people with my same "issues" used it for constipation, heartburn, even nausea, so I decided to "up" my one-a-day dose to at least twice per day, and wow, the difference is quite fantastic! I must say I'm a skeptic by nature but, MO is an inexpensive way to deal with common side effects from pain medicines, etc. Without any hesitation, I recommend this "medication" for anyone with stomach problems, especially females suffering, like myself, from endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and/or Celiac, or any auto-immune disease."

For : "I began taking magnesium as a supplement for muscle pain and spasms. I couldn't really tell you if I see anything (feel) different but.....I am no longer having constipation (from pain medicines) so I am happy with using it."

For Constipation: "After seeing two rectal surgeons, two gastroenterologists, and numerous primary care doctors I was still constipated. I was eating between 50 and 60 grams of fiber a day and drinking lots of water-all no help! I tried Colace but the cramping was really bad. I found taking 250 mg of magnesium at dinner worked! It has been a week and so far so good- I feel so much better. No more enemas or harsh laxatives."

For Constipation: "This supplement has really helped with my severe constipation. I stopped taking it and the constipation returned. I must take it with food or it will upset my stomach."
