Are there any good over-the-counter medications for IBS c I have been taking probiotics metamusal and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide)?

The interactions you saw are very rare, and usually requires that you have electrolyte abnormalities that are not common at your age group. Senna S is a vegetable laxative that is safer overall. ...Read more
