In brief: It depends!

If you are saying that mag citrate does not work for constipation, then you have a severe constipation ie need a doctor to evaluate and rule out the possibility of other causes including rarely cancer colon.
But if you are saying it did not work for preventing kidney stones, then the causes are different! but if you are saying did not work to control hypomagnesemia then it is different discussion.
