Reaction to Milk of Magnesia (MOM)

I took MOM to help my constipation (normal recommended dose) and ended up with nausea and severe vomiting last night (also diarrhea). It was the 2nd time I've taken MOM. The first time (2 wks ago) I was a little queasy but nothing like last night. I've been taking Colace and Sennakot as needed but after the chemo, Zofran and Compazine drugs (and stress!) needed a little extra help moving things along and was told to use MOM.

Has anybody else had this happen to them?

Also, I don't want to use this again - is there anything else out there?

I cannot use MOM, either -- it gives me severe stomach pains. Have you tried increasing the colace or maybe adding some metamucil to your diet?

I have only been taking the colace and metamucil capsules. The bottle says you can take up to 5, but I started with 1 now take 2 a day (metamucil). I have not had any problems since coming home. hth

Thanks for the advice about Metamucil. I'll speak with my doctor about it.

I wonder if it's unusual to be unable to take MOM. It's the big thing that all the docs and nurses keep recommending. I'm curious.
