Fast acting . It says cramp free but it gave me cramps once it really started to kick in over an hour later. I struggled with severe bloating and abdominal pain ,and I could not poop , just full and discomfort for about 4 days. The pain was so bad it was affecting my sleep and I didn’t care to eat . . I wanted something anything so I picked this up . After I took it about 30 minutes in I started to pass gas then I had soft bowl movement then another. And hour or so pass and I have full blown diarrhea! I didn’t expect that and it didn’t stop for a few hours but man my stomach pain was stopping and my bloating was going down as well . Light pain next morning but I feel so much better. And lighter . Definitely take the full cup if it’s been days since you had a poop and you’re in pain . It will flush you out .

24 hours and mission was accomplished! To my relief this really worked on constipation. The cherry flavor was not very good, but not so bad I wouldn’t use it.

My mom needed to use this while on hospice care and she was thrilled that it didn't taste like chalk and it worked efficiently and effectively. It wasn't harsh and it did what it was supposed to do. I highly recommend having this on hand for anyone who may be dealing with constipation issues. It truly works!

“Gentle”… yeah, right

I bought this specifically because it said it was “gentle” and marketed as wouldn’t give severe effects. It was anything but gentle. Horrific, debilitating stomach cramping that lasted 16 hours, even now 18 hours later the cramping has improved but explosive diarrhea is still present and accounted for. Don’t market something as gentle when it most definitely is not.

I like to carry a bottle of cherry milk of magnesia everywhere. Working in the hot sun I’ll often get trigger finger of massive leg cramps. I find that at the end of the day several mini sips of MOM, with several minutes will alleviate the problem. But, I sure could use TSA travel size (3oz) or less.

Thought I was going to end up in the Emergency Room because poop was stuck coming out but lack there of coming out if you know what I mean ! I needed something fast due to feeling tired & nauseous trying to go . Well I took 60ml of this milk magnesia & waited maybe 30 min max & it worked ! Saved me an embarrassing trip to the ER ! I keep this bottle in the bathroom for emergency situations like this one . I guess those that suffer from IBS Constipation , this is your friend !

So I was on the liquid diet past few days for my surgery and I used the milk day before. It worked very well in an hour even 30 min. But.. after 10 hours I still had it, I had pain back there because of to much toilet needs and also it’s green! Not greenish it’s literally green. I will talk with my doctor I hope I didn’t take overdose or anything. So it works but watch out.
