 Hey guys. I had to drink a Citrate of magnesia bottle this morning at around 7am. I had a sigmoidoscopy done in the afternoon. Everything looked OK for now. I will be staying on the same medication.
   Anyway, the diarrhea has not stopped yet and it is 7:20pm. I go once about every 1-2 hours. There is no urgency though. And I feel my gut just swishing and growling all day ever since I drank the stuff. How long does this stuff last? Anyone know?
