The deed is done - Mag Citrate

Just got through chugging that yummy, wonderful elixir called magnesium citrate. Grape flavor! Mmmmm!!!! (Please note inferred sarcasm LOL!). Honestly, the grape wasn't too bad - just a lot more sour than I expected it to be. What also helped, I put a grape Jolly Rancher in my mouth to help with the flavor. Seemed to work pretty good!
Well, that's one more step closer to the castle! Good luck y'all!

I took my lemon flavor at 7:45 am and just started hit me about an hour ago. Good luck.

Re: The deed is done - Mag Citrate

Thanks everyone! And yes - by all means use the jolly rancher trick! One of my girlfriends who had her hyst a month ago used lemon drops for lemon/lime flavored mag. And all kidding aside, the grape really and truly did not taste bad at all. And what was kinda funky tasting, the jolly rancher took care of it!
As far as how things are "progressing", I drank it at around 1:30 today. Had first bathroom trip at 3:30. I have been back at least 6 or 7 times (whomever suggested the baby wipes - you are a GENIUS!). Seems to be slowing down finally.
Y'all hang in there! Good luck to my other December 5ers with your date with the porcelain throne! LOL!
