    Milk of magnesia liquid to relieve constipation, original relieves irregularity. This product usually produces bowel movement in 1/2 to 6 hours. It is most commonly found as a liquid. The magnesium in the liquid can both neutralize excess stomach acid and, if taken in slightly larger doses, act as a saline laxative. This means that the magnesium works to pull salt or a saline solution from the blood into the intestines, therefore increasing the amount of water in the intestines and causing a laxative action.

    Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is generally considered to be one of the more gentle laxatives, as opposed to stimulant laxatives such as Dulcolax which can cause fairly painful abdominal cramps in some people and may result in a dependency - ie, the inability to have a bowel movement without the use of a laxative. Milk of magnesia may not cause dependency, but as with any medication it is important to check this with your doctor.
