Colonoscopy Prep Magnesium Citrate
I took my colonoscopy prep 2 and a half hours ago I barely vomitted it up just now. I took 2 bottles of magnesium citrate. My test is 12:30 tomorrow afternoon what should I do?
Wait for prep 2 work: The purpose of the liquid prep (which everyone agrees tastes really awful) is to clean out your colon so the dr using scope can see clearly during the exam. It is designed to cause successive bouts of diarrhea, until you can't go any more. If you only vomited up a little, it may still work as designed. If you don't experience results, call and reschedule the exam. They may give you a diff prep ...Read more
Drinking 20oz of magnesium citrate for a colonoscopy prep. What are chances of magnesium overdose?
Scheduled for colonoscopy but afraid magnesium citrate won't clear my colon. Docqulace and bisacodyl failed to evacuate colon. Will the citrate work?
AlwaysAGuess; agent,: dose & response relationships with all the usual complex individual variables. A full bottle of citrate of magnesia will likely be far more effective than the other agents, especially if one stays physically active, fasts, take 2 days prior & chase with another bottle 1 day prior. Just keep up clear liquids. Awareness of heart beats both a focus & a self-distraction (from other greater) issues. ...Read more

Took 400mg of presc magnesium this am before starting colonoscopy prep. Noticed suprep has magnesium. Is it ok that i took magnesium supplement.
Probably ok: The magnesium supplement you took was probably eliminated during the bowel cleansing process, which uses a magnesium-based laxative such as magnesium citrate. The magnesium in the bowel prep isn't absorbed by the body but passes through the intestines and causes the bowel-cleansing cathartic effect. Check with your pcp or gastroenterologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Drank 10oz of magnesium citrate 4.5 hrs ago and still nothing. How long does it take? (It's for a flex sig prep)
Surgery prep says take one bottle of magnesium citrate. bought milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Same or different?
Different: Magnesium citrate is different than milk of magnsesia. Look for citrate in a colored glass bottle usually. Ask the pharmacist if you cannot find it. It is a clear liquid and will cause BM fairly soon after you ingest it so I advise to take it at home. Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) will also cause a bowel movement but not as rapidly. ...Read more
