I had colon surgery 4 years ago. My colon literally ripped in two from severe constipation & diverticulitis. I take Relistor injections (which is a opioid blocker). Miralax, senna, mineral oil used on occasion. I feel like I just need to get cleaned out. Will Magnesium Citrate pills do that? Years ago I was prepping for a colonoscopy & they had me get Magnesium Citrate to drink. I couldn't tolerate the taste & vomited so I would have to use pills. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I thought it was important to note that since I was 2, I've had severe issues with constipation. I was often in the emergency room, screaming in pain. I agree that pain meds can cause constipation. I also know, I had this severe constipation before ever taking pain pills for my diseases. That's why I'm on Relistor. Thanks againM
The magnesium citrate liquid has come a long ways in taste. It's not nearly as nasty as it used to be. I get the lemon flavor and get it really cold than drink it , the pills work but not nearly as well. I would definitely try this again if your in misery.
have you tried mineral oil enemas ?? they worked for me when i had diverticulitis
