Also keep in mind that I believe that when we hear of these dangers, they almost always pertain to times a person is on a restricted diet, performing a bowel prep for surgery or a procedure. In other words, you're not eating solids, your liquids are limited, you're already depleted of nutrients. I've never been so desperate for normalcy to take Cit Mag or the Fleet's Phospho Soda but I've been tempted. I have done Fleet's saline enema's many times though BUT each time I do one I make sure I go into it all fully hyrated, I've eaten a healthy meal prior and I continue eating/drinking. Sipping tall glass of water, eating saltines, etc.
