Will taking magnesium (otc) for constipation interfere with Welchol?

It should be fine to take magnesium with Welchol. There are no known interactions between these medicines. However, it does not mean that no interactions exist so if you do experience any odd symptoms please see your doctor.

It's probably a good idea to separate the doses by 2 hours at least.

I should have been more specific in my question about using Magnesium/. I should have asked "will magnesium dilute or make welchol less effective? Since Welchol works in the intenstines, as does magnesium, it seems logical. Welchol is horribly constipating!! I exercise, drink gobs of water, and it's still deadly!
