Why does Magnesium Citrate Oral Solution need to be disposed of within 24 hours of opening bottle?
It is suggested you do this to avoid microbial contamination as it attracts moisture from the air. Magnesium Citrate does not decompose quickly. Under the proper conditions it should still be fine to continue using the oral solution after 24 hours. Consider refrigeration, tightly sealing the bottle, or removing the moisture in the bottle with silicon absorbents or a drying oven.

Magnesium citrate yielded from the chemical reaction of magnesium carbonate and citric acid.
Don't Think so You are instructed to take atripla on an empty stomach in order to increase absorption, taking any laxative/medicine can compromise the medications efficacy. Wi…th something as important as managing viral loads I definitely would not. Side effects and medication interactions can be found at viraday.info
medicine isn't supposed to taste good. but i am sure it is because it is designed as medicine and not a common regular beverage such as soda, or other soft drinks. if the comp…anies spent the same amount of money in taste development as Pepsi cola or Coca-cola. I am sure that it would taste great, but they are more concerned making the product effective, and safe for over the counter consumption.
i was just perscribed this at 11:30 pm. I was told it will help the colon contract to easily excrete the fecal matter that has built up inside your colon. So... ye…s you will have cramps and i myself am awaiting them right now
Yes, you can. Minerals do not expire.
It all depends on the person. I just drank one bottle at around 10:00 am... the first effects kicked in around 12:00pm. The more water I drank, the better the result. I have h…eard they can last quite some time... 8 hours or more. I would say if you are planning to use this, clear your schedule and stay close to a bathroom. Do not forget to drink plenty of water so you do not dehydrate.
it depends on how sever your constipation is, your age, and height & weight.
yes..24hrs after opening the bottle..

Microbial contamination (such as mold and yeast) can enter after the bottle is opened. Magnesium citrate formulas give microbes an ideal environment to grow.
Magnesium citrate (1:1) (1 magnesium atom per citrate molecule), called below by the common but ambiguous name magnesium citrate (which can also mean magnesium citrat…e (3:2)), is a magnesium preparation in salt form with citric acid. It is a chemical agent used medicinally as a saline laxative and to completely empty the bowel prior to a major surgery or colonoscopy. It is available without a prescription, both as a generic and under the brand names Citromag and Citroma. It is also used in the pill form as a magnesiumdietary supplement. It contains 11.3% magnesium by weight. Compared to magnesium citrate (3:2), it is much more water soluble, less alkaline, and contains 29.9% less magnesium by weight. As a food additive, magnesium citrate is used to regulate acidity and is known as E number E345.
