are you talking about magnesium citrate the mineral or magnesium citrat the fizzy liquid that comes in a bottle?

magnesium citrate the mineral can help relieve constipation. we have a lot of magnesium threads on here. it's safe to take long term as long as you don't have renal problems. it didn't help me but that's me. it's worth a try.

But I read if you take laxative then can't take magnesium citrate. Many years back I took but didn't help.

I have had mixed success with Magnesium Citrate in the past. It is safe to take 300mg daily, confirmed with my doctor.
