    Arrow Milk of Magnesia

    Hi all!

    I take M.O.M once a week to relieve me of my horrible BM pain. Is this safe? I know it's not good, but there is no other relief! HELP!

    What kind of pain are you having? If it is stomach pain then you need to try one of the new stomach meds available over the counter. If it is pain from constipation then you need to take Metamucil to relieve the constipation. Post more as to what is going on and more help can be given. Your post was way to vague.

    once a week shouldn't be bad for you....osmotic laxatives don't cause dependence like stimulant laxatives.....actually fiber supplements CAN cause worsen constipation if you have a sluggish bowel or a lot of residue in your colon...if you can't get enough fiber from your diet, although if you eat healthy and balanced, you should have no problem, take a flax fiber supplement that is balanced 50/50 between soluable and insoluable fibers...also fish, borage and flax oil have many health benefits and help lubricate your bowels.....

    mlgable, what medicine is avaiable over the counter for stomach ache? I have been experiencing stomache ache/abdominal pain recently. It seems to occur after sometimes after I eat. It is like a constant burning feeling in the Front lower half of the abdomin/stomache. What could this be? It does subside after I take pepto bismal. Bur comes back even after I drink a glass of water. Could there be inflammation somewhere? Also, if it is of any significance, it seems to be more pronounced when I am seated. Seems to subside or even go away when I am standing and/or walking. Thanks.

    Metamucil if taken properly really shouldn't cause a problem but I could be dead wrong on that one as I am not a doc. As for meds for stomach problems I guess I should have clarified that as I meant the acid reducers drugs like tagamet aka cimetidine, zantac aka ranitidine, Pepcid aka famotidine, Axid aka nizatidine and of course the newest on Prilosec.
