Magnesium and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I have been diagnosed with Iritable Bowel Syndrome (Constipation). I have tried everything, prescription & over the counter. So far, the best thing I have found is a natural laxative called Cascara Sagrada apparently I am not supposed to take it all the time. I ordered Chelated Magnesium and have started taking it.
(1) How much and how often should I take it?
(2) How long will it take before it starts working?
(3) Is is safe to take forever?
(4) Does Maganesium interfere with any prescription medications?
I take carbamazepine, asthma med's, anti-depressants, synthroid, and acid reflux medication.
Any help and advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
