Magnesium Citrate Prep For Colonoscopy
Drinking 20oz of magnesium citrate for a colonoscopy prep. What are chances of magnesium overdose?
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?

Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) will also cause a bowel movement but not as rapidly. ...Read more
Can i take magnesium citrate ontop of my miralax (polyethylene glycol) for bowel prep? 1 gallon of miralax (polyethylene glycol) is too much, can i only drink half a gallon?
