3 comments said to drink a glass of water with the mag citrate but didnt indicate when
When I had my Colonoscopy the Dr. instructed that I should start taking the Magnesium Citrate the night before approximately 7:00 PM. Also, only soup broth and clear or yellow Jello was recommended. The citrate will cause you to empty your bowels for the procedure the next day.
Immediately after the colonoscopy procedure please go home and rest for the day.
I would say after but it probably doesn't matter much. The water is to help the Mag Citrate work better. You need plenty of fluid in your system for the Mag Citrate to clean you out.
