For Constipation: "So I was heavily constipated. I had an ultrasound to show my tummy because the bloating was so bad. Well I drunk MC around 10:30pm nothing happened . I went to sleep. Around 5:00am my stomach had a little rumble and then my BM came out like a damn hot fire hydrant. Over and over. This stuff is amazing . However stay hydrated and stay by a bathroom"

For Constipation: "Amazing! It had been a week since I was able to use the bathroom and then I heard about MC. I'd say within 10 minutes I had great relief!! A few times...definitely stay near a bathroom! I drank the whole thing. Felt amazing!"

For Constipation: "I'm 5 days post surgery and pain from gas and constipation was unbearable. After trying several other remedies without results, I finally I purchased and drank a 300ml bottle of lemon flavoured MC. Just 4 hours later I finally have relief! The pressure in my abdomen has subsided and I no longer feel like my stitches are going to rip open."

For Constipation: "I get constipated quite often and I have tried everything, nothing but MC works for me, I really dislike the taste so I mix either the lemon or cherry with some diet 7up and it helps a lot, I drink the whole bottle at once.. you will definitely want to stay close to a bathroom!"

For Constipation: "Magnesium Citrate can be used a bowel prep product if used as directed by colonoscopy nurse. In low doses it is a mild laxative. I use it for muscles and sleep much better at night."

For Constipation: "I wasn't able to use the bathroom for 3 days. Today I went to the dollar store to buy me some cherry magnesium citrate saline laxative. I drink 6oz of it and 42oz of water and hour later I was able to use the bathroom. 2 hours after that I had diarrhea. Thank God I was able to use the bathroom! No, more constipation."

For Constipation: "Taking pain meds after having back surgery really stuffed me up for 10 days. After trying stool softeners and miralax I hit the web and found lots of good stuff about Magnesium Citrate. I took it around noon and drank 4 or five big cups of water within a few hours. It tasted kinda bitter, but it didn't make me gag or nauseous. After a few hours I became pretty bloated and it was not comfortable. I was starting to think it wasn't going to work until 3:30 am when I finally emptied out. Great stuff. Feel so much better. Worth a day of cramps."

For Constipation: "Holy guacamole Batman it worked! But boy it was a Journey lol for 4 days I hadn't pooped! I had already taken laxatives, stool softener, a bucket of prunes, fiber pills, other fiber pills and still no poop over the last 4 days! So I called friend that has Gastroparesis and asked her what she takes? She said MC! So here it 7:30 at night and I'm off to the drugstore. I chugged it at 8:43 I immediately wanted to puke after I was done. But I said no to myself I have to keep this down! I managed to get down another bottle of water in addition to the two bottles of water I drank before the MC! So I'm sitting here on the potty reading all the other stories and laughing so hard I shoulda crapped my pants but nope! No poop! An hour later I managed to make it to my bed it's 9:45pm insanely nauseated (I gave up on pushing even though I had the urge to) hoping I can just nap then I won't feel the sickness! Then I get this cold sweat come over me, my hands get all clammy, my head starts hurting, I feel like my heart is about to pop out of my chest, my pulse quickened even worse then it had been, my stomach turns and feel everything come up and I projectile puke like in the exorcist movie and it's going everywhere! It doesn't stop after one puke oh no! We're talking 3 projectile pukes! I can't even move closer to the restroom I just fall to the floor completely weak & out of control all cold and sweaty now just puking and puking! it's everywhere! Then when I stop I immediately feel better as far as the nausea and all those other side effects lol but now I have this huge mess! And still no poop! Plus I'm like great after all that now the MC ain't even gonna work because I puked it all up! Boy was I wrong! Got cleaned up and went to bed! Then about 2:04am I awaken with the urge to fart I run to the potty! And oh ya! It was like I pooped out the titanic or something! Once I was done pooping out the poop the size of a killer whale I wiped washed my hands and was gonna turn off the lights and shut the door then I was like ohhhh boy! I had to run back to the potty lol for an encore performance! I puked it all up lol I thought noway this isn't gonna work now! But it did! Dude I feel like pooped so much my legs hurt from flexing them while trying to push lol my caves n ankles feel like they are about to fall off lol and butt feels raw lol it's now 6:56am and I haven't had to poop again thank goodness. idk where it would come from lol all stool was intact no diarrhea so far!"

For Constipation: "Ive started on wellbutrin, and man, I've been extra extra backed up. This time I hadn't gone in almost a week after trying stool softners, senna, bulk laxitives, I even ate 3 servings of broccoli one night with high hopes. Lol. But I remembered my coworker was extremely constipated while she was on chemo last year, so I asked her what to do, and she said MC. Super cheap, and the cherry flavor, while sour, is actually quite delicious. I had a small solid bowel about 30 minutes after finishing the whole bottle (and then 16oz of water) so I was disappointed, but about 3 hours in, I was singing it's praises. Went to bed with no accidents, and woke up with more liquid stool, but no complaints here. I'll never use anything else again!"

For Constipation: "This stuff works AMAZING! Drink a full bottle (I did the cherry and mixed it with 7up, it wasn't bad) and drink and ton of water. As much water as you can. I also suggest moving around instead of sleeping while you're waiting because movement helps your bowels move faster. This will work for you, just be prepared. Dedicate your whole day to this, you'll need it! Happy pooping y'all!"

For Constipation: "After an alcohol binge that messed up my digestion for days I tried 4 tbsp of milk of magnesium, worked a bit, but after a day I still felt backed up. So I took a 10oz bottle of Magnesium Citrate at 8:30pm. Downed it in about 15 mins. I immediately got nauseous which lasted for about 2 hours. But I kept it down. In my 3rd hour it hit me good, I was in the bathroom about 8-10 times between 11pm-2am. I was able to feel better so I fell asleep. Woke up twice at 6am & 7am to another heavy explosion. When I got up at 10am I felt icky, not sick but my insides were crawling. That lasted for a few hours, but subsided. Now its 7pm and still making me go a bit, causing stomach grumbling and gas. Overall, if you want guaranteed effectiveness try this!"

For Constipation: "After 9 days and 3 enamas, 2 glycerine suppositories, endless amounts of water, smooth move, copious amounts of stool softeners and rancid apple cider vinegar I finally made the jump and drank half the bottle of cherry. 12 hrs 41 mins later I am in heaven! I couldn't be more thankful for this miracle worker. Overall...the cramping was bearable. If there is a next time I will not wait, I'll go straight for the cherry!"

For Constipation: "Make sure you drink more than 8 ozs of water after taking the whole bottle. LOTS OF WATER right after taking it.. You will need butt ointment, vinyl gloves, baby wipes, and garbage bags. I had to take 3 bottles in 24 hrs for the colonoscopy. My butt was terribly raw, I used cold pressed castor oil, but I heard A&D ointment works good and prob won't be as oily.. It took 2 hrs to work with just 8 ozs of water, but would have worked sooner if I had taken 16 ozs of water. The more water you drink the more it will work. I bought lemon flavor at Big Lots, but I've heard it comes in grape or cherry."

For Constipation: "I went to the ER last night after a week of little BM. the doctor gives you the 10oz and bottle and told me to drink it when I get home, and stay near the toilet. I got home drank it was about 1130 at night so I stayed up till 1:00, eventually I got tired and went to sleep. I woke up at 6:00 with such urge to go. it's 9:00 am right now and i'm on my 4th BM already. it works good just make sure to stay hydrated."

For Constipation: "I was backed up for almost a whole week after taking a bunch of different antibiotics and every time I tried to go it wouldn't come out or it would hurt to bad to come out. I tried everything and finally a pharmacist offered magnesium citrate and after about 6 hours I was able to go to the bathroom with ease. I've still been going almost every 4-6 hours for the past 2 days. But I feel much better. I would recommend this to anyone having any troubles. I thought I would still be in pain going but I wasn't."

For Constipation: "I got a good laugh reading a lot of these comments. So I drank the full 10oz bottle at 430pm. It was hard to finish and probably took and hour and a half to finish the terrible thing (lemon flavor) then as prescribed I took miralax right after. Hours go by and nothing is happening. At one point before I go to sleep a little does come out with what I assume is called "the plug" so I'm like okay, yes, here we go. Finally some relief to this stomach pain I've been having for almost two weeks (which was chalked up to stress; causing my constipation). Nope. Eventually I couldn't stay awake but I woke up about every hour throughout the night to go and push just the tiniest amount. Now I'm off to work and still not empty :("

For Constipation: "I had surgery 6 days ago and was given percadet then I took motrin and tylenol for the pain which caused constipation. I had no bowel movements for 5 days I tried prune juice, lots of water, walking and Zantac 150mg and on the 6th day my doctor recommended the magnesium citrate. I tried the cherry flavor did half at 1pm and very little happened then at 7pm drank the remaining bottle which to me wasn't that bad just sour. At 2am I was in the bathroom passing diarrhea in parts. My stomach has not stopped rumbling the entire time (it's extremely noisy). This is really uncomfortable and I took the day off for this. I recommend this product if you have constipation. I am thankful that it is finally coming down."

For Constipation: "Was extremely backed up after 3 wks on tramadol followed by 6 weeks of very poor BMs. Read all these reviews, bought 2 bottles mag cit. First one 11 am, nothing. Second one at 9pm. At 3am passed small amount, but no gurgles. At 11am next day nurse friend suggested enema, WOW did that work fast. For the next 24 hours, cleaned out system, feel amazing today."

For Constipation: "The absolute only thing that works when I am severely constipated. Always makes me nauseous drinking it (cherry is the best tasting in my opinion) but is worth it!"
