My new gastro just told me I SHOULD NOT BE TAKING Magnesium Citrate for C (I take 1200mg a day)because it is harsh on the intestinal lining. Instead he prescribed herbal drops called Yobsalax for my chronic C.Well, they sure do the job! Problem is, with these drops, any BM is accompanied by severe abdominal pain, before during and for some time after. I don't know why. With the mag. I didn't have such severe cramping, only a dull pain before a BM.What should I do? I'm tempted to simply revert back to the mag., but now I'm scared after the doctor said it's ruining the intestinal lining. Does that even make sense?
