Any danger using 1tbs milk of magnesia nightly long term for tendency to constipation? Diet is good plenty of fiber etc. Dont like miralax (polyethylene glycol) or colace.

? If you diet is good why do you need all these laxatives and softeners? No you cannot use milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) long term. Try water and exercise. Drink apple or prune juice. Get your system working on its own or you will be dependent on these softeners for the rest of your life. .
