  • Nightmares from miralax
    Used for an endoscopy prep, great for what it does but gave me horrid and vivid nightmares
  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
