Magnesium oxide for constipation
Have anyone who suffers from constipation has heard about Magnesium Oxide? I understand it comes in capsules. I take Myralax but I heard it is not good for your kidneys if you take it frequently so I am stopping it. Any information about it will be appreciated. Thank you

Hi @naiviv, I have not tried magnesium oxide for my running battle with constipation but there is an older discussion started by @ellamster that you might want to read through to learn what has been shared.

I'm trying to get my constipation under control for an upcoming inguinal hernia surgery and have been taking Miralax daily but still have issues. I recently found a member in another discussion that mentioned Heather's Tummy Fiber Organic Acacia Senegal for IBS – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002ON8DU. I ordered some and it really has helped more than anything else that I have tried.
Thank you. As a matter of fact my PCP told me to take Myralax instead of Magnesium oxide which could cause potential diarrhea. I will take Myralax for a while to see how it works. Also someone mentioned Colace but it is not mentioned too often. Thanks for the information
Mayo is enrolling patients in a study of miralax impact on kidneys. Lets pursue this! I am currently taking ine teaspoon of Miralax daily with 2 tsp of benefiber. Need to improve water intake. Does anyone have more information te miralax and kidneys?
I use Magnesium LOTION on my body for aches and pains. If I use a bit too much it has a laxative effect. However, it’s transdermal so the magnesium does not affect your organs! If you are constipated you can apply the lotion to your skin.
And it helps my arthritis pain…
I get the lotion or oil on Amazon.
