Magnesium Citrate Tablets 2x100mg a day be as Harsh on the Stomach as Aspirin if you already have Aspirin Sensitivity.? Best taken on full stomach?

What's your object?: Both acid (citrate) and basic (hydroxide) salts of magnesium are usually used as laxatives or to replace metabolic states of low plasma magnesium and also have sedating properties. I don't believe they stimulate Hydrochloric acid secretion as does aspirin. But almost anything that upsets the stomach should be taken with food, and re-evaluate why you are taking it. ...Read more

Constipation: If you have a strong urge to have a bowel movement and can't, work from below. Try inserting a glycerin rectal suppository. If not successful, insert a dulcolax rectal suppository or a fleets enema. If no urge to go, take another laxative orally such as dulcolax or mirilax. In stubborn cases manual disimpaction is used. See your MD if still in distress. ...Read more

Was very constipated and bloated with very hard stomach took magnesium citrate and felt relief but minutes after still got very bloated with pain in left lower abdomen, what could this be?

Constipation: Magnesium citrate temporarily relaxes the smooth muscle in the large intestine and allows hard stool to start to move through it. The pain you might be feeling is still the hard stool pushing its way through. I would use an OTC medication like Miralax (polyethylene glycol) which draws extra water into the large intestine, increasing motility and making the stool softer as it passes through to the rectum. ...Read more

Consultation: For personal attention to a medical concern, consider a consultation with a doctor here on HealthTap. The "inbox consult" allows you to message back and forth like email, and is good when a lot of information needs to be exchanged (like prior test reports, etc.) A video chat consult allows you to talk to the doctor (for a certain limited amount of time) so it's good for a quick question. ...Read more

Enema: You don't say how long it has been since your last bowel movement. But if 2 suppositories (were they laxative or glycerin) and a bottle of citrate of magnesium hasn't stimulated a bowel movement than an enema may be the next step. Disposable fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) is easy to use and affordable. ...Read more
