Constipated?: It is used for treating magnesium deficiency states and it is also a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine. It usually results in a bowel movement within 30 minutes to 3 hours. This is why it is used for bowel preparation for colonoscopy and surgery.
