How often can you take magnesium citrate safely?

Depends on kidneys

Body
Mag citrate has 2 benefits: treats constipation and prevents kidney stone formation. However, if you take mag citrate chronically, you need to check with your doctor because build up of magnesium in the blood could cause heart rhythm abnormality that is occasionally fatal (ventricular tachycardia). Kidney weakness decreases magnesium excretion and builds it up in the blood.

Is magnesium citrate ok to induce labor?

Not likely

Obstetrics
Magnesium is used by OB to slow / delay / stop labor. Mag citrate will likely just give you a colicky stomach prior to "clearing you out" from wrong (or at least not intended) orifice. Sorry.
