Food poisoning? Started day before yesterday at night after eating at friends house. Real watery stool with no soilds and vomiting.

It's possible, but..: Your limited information does not provide enough of a context for symptom onset, severity, or duration. Especially if distress persists, or is accompanied by bleeding, worsening pain, lightheadedness, or development of vomiting or fever, then get a good examination with appropriate testing for reassurance and/or treatment. Wouldn't point fingers unless others got sick from eating the same food. ...Read more

Took milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) and now I keep pooping yellow watery stool. Been like this for 2 days now. Every time I eat, it goes through.

Diarrhea: This may be an effect of the milk of magnesia, (magnesium hydroxide) although it usually doesn't last that long. If it's due to the medicine, it should resolve over the next day or two. If the diarrhea persists, be sure to drink lots of fluids to avoid dehydration. Call your doctor if the diarrhea lasts longer than a week, if it worsens, or if new symptoms develop. Good luck. ...Read more

Food poisoning.: With vomiting and diarrhea, I suspect that you may have food poisoning (most likely salmonella).

If these symptoms last more than a day and you cannot keep fluid down, then see your doctor or going to an urgent care center are the options. ...Read more

Prune juice is my only solution to constipation but it gives me a watery stool. Will it be bad for me to take it 3 times a week?

Though a BM 3 x a week is adequate though not ideal, the diarrhea associated with prune juice suggests a food intolerance which could lead to other nutritional deficiencies.
