yeah, that was me, & it does help in a big way! I had a colonsocopy & did not go to the bathroom for 4 days... not so comfy. So on my GI's advice, I bought Milk of Magnesia, took 3T at night, & by the AM was going- not diarrhea, just "normal" bm's. I was back to normal in a day or so. I was totally leery of trying anything resembling a laxative, but it really helped gently. I get constipated from Remicade- but I think it's just the colon working "normally", so I don't take anything for that. It gets better as time goes on after the infusions. I suppose I try to eat more fruit & fiber until then.
