Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Yes Magnesium citrate can be used.Its a osmotic diuretic and is very effective.However if constipation is severe use polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution with dulcolex tablets.The combination would give you immediate relief and is available over the counter.
