Dear customer,

The milk of magnesia is a laxative and should not be used for more than a week without consulting your doctor.The excess laxative abuse is harmful for the body and digestive tract and should be avoided.

You may take the natural fibres and take green vegetables and fruits for the natural relief of constipation.
