Magnesium Citrate: How long before Im potty bound?
My surgery is monday and I am suppose to clean myself out by only having fluids today and tomorrow then use magnesium citrate before i go to bed tomorrow. Only problem is I have to work till 7 pm tommorow and surgery is at 830 am the next day. How long does this stuff take to work? Can I take it at work around 5pm and hope I make it home before it kicks in or should I just wait till I get home?
Uh, I would wait till I got home to do the mag citrate stuff. It worked pretty rapidly on me; maybe 30 minutes or so. Don't know if it makes a difference but I was on an all liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to the prep stage. Good luck on your surgery!
Do NOT take it at 5:00 while you're at work for another 2 hours!!!!! It took between 30-45 minutes to work on me and I was in the bathroom multiple times before I went to bed that night. The next morning I went before going to the hospital and again before my surgery! I suggest you get some baby wipes to clean yourself because regular TP might leave you a bit sore.
Pretty disgusting. I just drank the grape flavored one about an hour ago. Its like drinking the sweetest saltiest most bitter thing that sort of resembles grape cough syrup. No results yet except my mouth keeps watering like i am going to vomit and Im green gilled. Good luck - this stuff is sooooooo gross.
I was told to take TWO bottles, one each day prior to surgery!! Surgery is the 25th, so I've taken one bottle today... HOW ON EARTH do they think I can do another bottle tomorrow while I'm on a liquid diet!?? I've been living in the bathroom since I drank it!
