Took it last night with plenty of water. Its been 2 weeks since my last bm. Not the first time. Was trying to make it easier by using magnesium citrate. Now next day nothing. It felt like it was wprking at first but when i woke up, no go.
I have had ongoing constipation due to medications. I tried everything! Even the magnesium citrate did not work. I tried Miralax laxative after seeing an add on TV. No more problems at all. Now, everyone's body is different, but that is what works perfectly for me. I wish Id tried it a long time ago.
I too have a history of not having a bm for 2, 3 sometimes 4 wks. at a time. Had it all my
life, now I'm 50 and my condition has worsened to where I'm drinking the mag.citrate. Took it over 24 hrs. ago, nothing. Going to the doctor doesn't help. They really can't do anything for me. I've been told I can not get cancer with this kind of a condition. Hmm, I wonder. Enemas stool softeners & herbs don't help. I have experienced, after 4 wks. of no b.m., that it just comes out by force... loose. I usually end up sick to stomach though... sitting in the bathroom for 2 hrs. going and my heart racing, sweating profusely, nauseated and on the verge of fainting. No doctor has helped me thus far and won't take me into the hospital just to clean me out. Can anyone out there help me?
