I feel like I may still be constipated even though the mag citrate worked. Does it take a few days to have a regular bm?
Citrate of magnesium really cleans you out. In my case I do not have a bowel movement for at least three days. But everyone is different when it comes to how often they have a bowel movement. I have a sluggish bowel so weather permitting I try to walk two miles most days to get the bowels moving. It does help. If weather is bad I walk up and down the steps, around the dining room table. I can also walk my son's dog who could care less about the weather.
Good luck and let me know how you are doing.
