Is it safe to use Milk of Magnesia twice a week?
I'm 27/male and in good shape. I have been through the works for severe constipation. Here are the things I've tried: - Stool softeners, one daily - High fiber diet, plenty of water - Low/no sugar diet - Prunes, apples, etc - Enemas when I really can't go - Exercise Despite all this, I can barely go anymore without something to do the work for me, like an enema. I make sure I go at least twice a week, and I've had to take an enema to do even that, lately. That went on for two weeks. I just tried Milk of Magnesia and that works even better than an enema. Can I take this for my "at least twice a week" routine without getting mineral deficiency or making my bowel lose more of its natural functioning? (I have heard stimulant laxatives ruin natural functioning, but MoM is an osmotic laxative, theoretically it should not cause dependency.)

Milk of Magnesia is a mild osmotic laxative. You are right that the risk of dependency and mineral deficiency is low, especially if you use it only twice a week. If it works for you, it is a lot better than a stimulant lax like dulcolax. If you have tried all of the other things that you have listed and you still have chronic constipation, then you do need to be taking something to keep your colon from getting totally impacted, and MOM is about the safest thing that you can use. A tap water of Fleet enema is also considered safe if not used every day. However, if you think that the MOM is giving better results than an enema, by all means use the MOM. The only disadvantage is that like any laxative, it can be a bit unpredictable in terms of when it works and how aggressive the action is. It is best not to be caught out in traffic when it hits. LOL I have the same problem as you. I only go twice a week and I have to take something to go. I am afraid to use something more often for fear of messing up my body even more than it already is. Unfortunately, my body doesn't respond to osmostic laxatives very well anymore and I find myself needing stimulant laxatives. Feel free to contact me if you want more info.
