      I take Milk of Magnesia as well. Swig at night and I have no problems.(except my stomach makes the most unusual sllurping sounds when I lay down-a little embarassing.

        me 2 mary...no cramps, but it is like peeing out of your rectum when you have a bm. Doesn't bother me though. Better than not going for 2 weeks.

                some fiber supplements can cause people to flare. Look for Philips capsules for the milk of mag to take by pill. The liquid works much better though

                    Senakot tablets work well for me, no flare-ups, and they are very gentle but they work.
                    Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
                    Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

                    Peace, Carolyn

                      I take Miralax every day and it makes me regular. I get it by prescription but I saw an ad where it is over the counter now.

                              I use Miralax powder. It used to be by prescription only but it is now sold OTC. I read about it here.....I think Sandy RN had a post about it. I tried it and it works great for me. I have not been constipated since I started using it.

                              Galatians 6:2 - Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

                              Hebrews 13:2 - Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

                              Proverbs 4:23 - Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life
