    Thanks ladies.
    I dont have IBS, but I do have a neuropathic dysmotility of my small intestines and likely this could be effecting my large bowel as well. I believe my bowels just are not moving to well. This all started after I took a low dose macrodantin last Friday before my instill so that may have caused my bowels to slow up, I dont know though. Thanks for the info though. I did talk to my GI nurse and she said to take the miralax 2 times a day and also if things do not get moving to take 10 ounces of magnesium citrate. I had a BM this afternoon finally, not a huge one, but hey, something is better than nothing I guess. I just wish this severe bloat would go away or at least get better. I am alwaya having upper gut bloating due to my slow gut, but now the lower is all bloated and this just really bites. Thanks again.

    Before you take it, I would look into seeing if you have IBS. I didn't know until recently that a lot of IC people have IBS. I do, I thought I was the only one until I came on this site. I always got constipated badly. I take Zelnorm now and it helps.

    I take chelated magnesium 2 x per day and ground flax seeds on my cereal. Constipation is somewhat better but I still need to take a jolt of MOM once in a while.

    magnesium = good!

    jen,
    magnesium should be fine for you. it is a natural (albiet mild) muscle relaxant as well.

    when i had constipation issues in the past, i used to take lots of vitamin b-50...cleaned me out asap. can't do that anymore . magnesium helps though.

    Doesn't bother me either. I take it with my calcium pill.

    started a topic Magnessium??

    Magnessium??

    I was just wondering if magnessium is safe to take with the IC? I am having big time constipation issues due to my motility disorder and want to try taking some magnessium as I hear it is helpful with getting the movement of the bowels going. I just want to see if it is IC safe. Any ideas?
