Are there any good over-the-counter medications for IBS c I have been taking probiotics metamusal and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide)?
IBS: I would recommend that you do a food dairy and see which foods you are allergic (ibs pts have allergies). The most common are dairy and gluten. You can try a to do a food elimination diet where you eliminate an entire food category for 1-2 weeks to see if you improve. I would recommend a high strength probiotic of 80 billion. For constipation i would recommend taking mag 500-1000 mg per night. ...Read more
Take 10mg celexa a day and just took 4 tbsp of milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) for constipation. Just saw on drugs.com there's a moderate interaction. Am I okay?
Yes.: You're on low dose of celexa. Just be cautious on milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) use. It's not good to use large amounts of milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) at any time. The interactions you saw are very rare, and usually requires that you have electrolyte abnormalities that are not common at your age group.

Can i take milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) if i take abuterol,singulair,bystolic,amildopine ,zyretex,klonipin,asprin,musinex is there any drug interaction?
No: milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is not appreciably absorbed and works mostly in the intestines to increase fluid intake into the bowel to promote a bowel movement. If taken in excess it can cause fluid loss and dehydration, which could effect your other meds. If taken as prescribed, it should not cause problems, but talk to your doctor and/or pharmacist to be sure. ...Read more

High metal content: Well it depends what you are talking about. We are not supposed consume high amounts of aluminum. It is usually found in the water and deodorant. In general metals are harmful to us. This is why its better to drink bottled water than tap. Heavy metals are more dangerous. If you consume too much aluminum, it could deposit in tissues...Not good.

No: Dialysis dementia resulted in part from aluminum toxicity but that was introduced in fairly sizable amounts into the bloodstream itself. There's a "pop" claim about aluminum in drinking water "correlating with" Alzheimer's but when I chased down the actual article it showed a NEGATIVE relationship, the facts being misrepresented by the scaremongers. I decided it was noise -- no real relationship. ...Read more

There are no significant toxic effects from a small piece of foil, nor should there be any mechanical problems such as an obstruction. I always say however if you are having severe pain or vomiting, you should be seen. ...Read more
Manufacturer knows: Stainless steel bottles are found everywhere and from everywhere. Some major "health food" chains sell glass bottles encased in a rubber-like sleeve to decrease the chance of breakage. Both types require careful attention to cleaning, which can be difficult around the curved parts. Baby bottle brush helps clean before putting into dishwasher. Untreated glass (like in baby bottles) might be best. ...Read more
