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).
