Yesterday I was extremely constipated. Went to the doctors and my X-rays showed I had a build up of poop. When the magnesium citrate finally kicked in... my poop was liquidy and black and the toilet tissue had a few streaks of blood. Just wondering if this is a normal side effect?
Does Magnesium Citrate cause your stool to turn black?

The black stools are an indication of the presence of blood in the stool, and not uncommon. This is usually minor and self limiting. Possibly due to straining and or from anal irritation. See your doctor though if this continues.
