Reviews for Magnesium oxide
For Constipation: "Have had constipation for years and years. Over the counter medicines were not reliable or caused pain. Did my own research and found MO. What a thrill. Inexpensive, reliable, no side effects. After using it for awhile I stopped and found I didnt need it. Now after a very holiday season of eating and drinking I find I'm constipated so I'm back on magnesium for awhile to reset my system."

For Hypomagnesemia: "I took magnesium glycinate for months with no problem, when I ran out of it I bought this one (magnesium oxide) because it was alot cheaper. Pretty soon I started having a weird cramp in my calves when I walked. I stopped taking it for two weeks, no cramps. Started it again and had cramps immediately (only when walking). So I went ahead and bought the more expensive glycinate, and sure enough I haven't had any cramps. Weird! But I won't take this one ever again."

For Constipation: "Most helpful treatment for ibs with constipation ever. I was on zelnorm before which was recalled due to safety. I promised myself to never take rx for chronic issues and try to manage them as much as I can with natural, safe treatments as much as possible. I tell everyone about magnesium, wish doctors would know about it."

For Constipation: "I started taking thia about a month ago in the morning for my constipation and it works better with way less side effects than both amitiza and linzess. I am so happy I ran across this and found out it unofficially treats issues many of my issues including constipation, migraines, anxiety, sleep troubles, energy issues, etc. Since I have severe constipation, this brings my system some normality and not diarrhea. I love it and it is a new staple."

For Constipation: "I am taking digestive advantage constipation formula which has 400 mg of magnesium oxide. It is absolutely the only thing that has ever helped me with constipation and never cramps and is completely reliable daily. The best thing ever. I am sure plain Magnesium oxide 300 mg would do the same if they should stop making this. This has been a Godsend now for a year and a half. Like clockwork..."

For Hypomagnesemia: "I started this medicine at the suggestion of my D.O. as my magnesium levels were very low and I had bad leg cramps. It did help the cramps quite a bit and my blood levels did return to normal. However, I began to have bad bouts of nausea and vomiting and occasional diarrhea that I had to take additional medication to stop. I took 400 mg but was never advised to take it with food. "

For Constipation: "I came upon this website as I was looking for different uses of magnesium oxide (MO); my initial reason for taking MO was for nerve pain, but I found it very interesting that people with my same "issues" used it for constipation, heartburn, even nausea, so I decided to "up" my one-a-day dose to at least twice per day, and wow, the difference is quite fantastic! I must say I'm a skeptic by nature but, MO is an inexpensive way to deal with common side effects from pain medicines, etc. Without any hesitation, I recommend this "medication" for anyone with stomach problems, especially females suffering, like myself, from endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and/or Celiac, or any auto-immune disease."

For Not Listed / Other: "I began taking magnesium as a supplement for muscle pain and spasms. I couldn't really tell you if I see anything (feel) different but.....I am no longer having constipation (from pain medicines) so I am happy with using it."

For Constipation: "After seeing two rectal surgeons, two gastroenterologists, and numerous primary care doctors I was still constipated. I was eating between 50 and 60 grams of fiber a day and drinking lots of water-all no help! I tried Colace but the cramping was really bad. I found taking 250 mg of magnesium at dinner worked! It has been a week and so far so good- I feel so much better. No more enemas or harsh laxatives."

For Constipation: "This supplement has really helped with my severe constipation. I stopped taking it and the constipation returned. I must take it with food or it will upset my stomach."
