I just ate a small bite of a cookie laced with a whole pack of laxatives and a small amount of milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). My tongue and throat is burning.

In brief: Laxative cookies?

Why would you do that? I don't understand.
However, I am guessing that by the time you receive this, your tongue is feeling better. If not, brushing gently and thoroughly including your tongue, should suffice.

In brief: Got Milk?

Try drinking some milk.
That usually helps when you have spicy food. Doesn't sound like it's the milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) because it's primary function is to soothe, not burn.
