I take 90 to 120 mgs of morphine daily for pain control (30mg tablets). I have maintained this dose consistently (2+ Years). I've taken magnesium citrate as a laxative in the past-10 oz per dose (1.75 per fl oz) as needed. It usually does the job. Brand name is Citroma by Swan. Is a continued weekly or biweekly use of this product recommended? I would like to eliminate or reduce usage of other laxatives.

Hello, Jerry! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having.

Actually, there are specific warnings that state magnesium citrate is not safe for chronic, or long-term use. It's typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include gas, diarrhea, stomach cramps and bloating.

If you need something for long-term use, it would be best to discuss it with your doctor or pharmacist to see what is safe for you to use.

Have you tried fiber supplements? I found them to help greatly, when I had opiate induced constipation.
