Bowel prep not working!

My dVH is in the morning and I have drank both bottles of magnisium citrate. First bottle went down 5 hours ago, second bottle 3 hours ago. Nothing has happened yet! Should I be concerned?
I went on my own right before I drank the first bottle, so I know the "path" is clear.
I really hope it doesn't kick in after I go down for the night.

My magnesium citrate didn't start to work for about 6 hours and then took about 6 hours to stop working.

Same here. I wad concerned it wouldnt stop before I had to be at the hospital. Give it some more time.

Good luck on your upcoming surgery. Wish you a speedy recovery.

Mine is in the morning too. My cleanse was laxatives at 3:00 and the Miralax. I am done....it hit quickly. Best wishes tomorrow.

Bananahater,
I hope things are coming out for you and hopefully done by now. LOL Wishing you a solid nights sleep and best of recovery tomorrow. My date is Monday but my daughter came down with a cold and today I have had a few sneezes and sniffles. I have hit the zinc and am hoping to get on with it so that I am not forced to postpone and dread even longer. UGH Praying for you. Keep me posted please. T

Re: Bowel prep not working!

Did you drink a full glass of water after it? If not drink an 8 ounce glass of water and that will do the trick. Best wishes tomorrow.

What kind did you ladies find. I got some at wal-mart and it claims to be lemon flavor which scares me that it will taste like pledge. Any tips. Did anyone find another flavor?

There is no good flavor of mag citrate. OMGosh - it's terrible. Fortunately, for my hysterectomy I only had to do one Fleet's enema and a medicate douche.

I can't say it tastes good, but it really wasn't awful.

I made sure it was very cold and I had a clear grapefruit soda with it. One big swig of the mag citrate and one big swig of my soda to clear my palate.

I'd also recommend using a straw. It seemed to make it go down easier and quicker.
