  • Sort of. You can get constipated severely but that's pretty much all it can do. Now I was told that it contains aluminum. If this is the case, Alzheimer's disease can occur. The aluminum can collect in the brain causing Alzheimer's later on. This is a fact. Same with Rolaids. So be careful.

  • Yes, it tells you not to take over a certian amount on the bottle. I never tried it to see what it would do though!! :)

  • Yes. If you have problems that persis\st see a doctor . You should never stay long on over the counter medications and never overdose . .I don't buy over the counter meds except for aspirin and tylenol.
