I have been heavily abusing laxatives for a couple of years now, meaning that there are very few laxatives left that 'work' the way I want them to. My latest poison of choice is magnesium hydroxide-based laxatives.
The dangers associated with various types of laxative abuse are listed here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002586.htm
My question is if anyone here has experienced physical complications due to laxative abuse, magnesium-based in particular. I have been extremely lucky so far considering my level of abuse, experiencing only physical discomfort during withdrawls/tapers over the course of several hospitalizations (taper never lasted outside of the hospital).
