Hello everyone. Yes, it is a rather indelicate topic yet one that is the bane of the existence of anyone taking narcotic meds on a regular basis. I would like to pass along a helpful tip. For the past year, I have been taking daily Magnesium supplements and my constipation is, thankfully, a thing of the past! You will need to figure out how much you need to achieve the desired effect. I take 1000 mgs. Magnesium has many other health benefits as well and, while I don't pretend to understand the science behind it, I just know that it works like a charm for me!
