Milk of Magnesia vs. Mg Citrate liquid

Should one expect any different results when changing from MOM to Mg Citrate? MOM is Mg Oxide, and I imagine you can adjust the dose so that either product provides the same amount of Mg. Thanks.

Are you talking about the saline mag citrate that you drink? I find it works better for me than MOM, but everyone is different.

Yes, the mag citrate that comes in the 10-oz bottles. If you take it, how much did you start with? I've been taking MOM >1 year and now take a daily dose of about 40 ml. My GI said either is acceptable for indefinite use.

I drink either half or the whole bottle when I need extra help, but I have really intractable symptoms, not sure how severe your C is, so not entirely sure what to recommend. I wouldn't start with the whole bottle, anyways. Start with the lowest dose listed on the bottle, you can always go up.
