Probably symptoms related to the use of milk of magnesia, more details are needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to the use of milk of magnesia.

More details are needed to help me through the diagnosis.

How long do you have soft stools?

Do you have any other symptoms such as nausea or fever?

Do you have any other medical condition and are you taking any medication actually?

Do you have a healthy diet?

I will be waiting for your answers to be able to help you better.

Meanwhile, I recommend to stop using the milk of magnesia.

I also recommend using daily probiotics.

I suggest you to use a plain diet, which contains bananas, rice and toast.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
