So its a weird assumption I have resistance to it. Just bc I didn't mention it necessarily while going over the most recent stuff and having a general emergency
Look, no bad intentions at all.
Titration to bowel-tolerance always works, by taking however much it takes. If you tried it.
I have tried malic acid and magnesium and vitamin c but maybe not in high enough doses.
By definition you tried ascorbic acid, but not by titrating to bowel-tolerance in high enough doses to experience a flush, as I informed clearly. Here the best definition and explanation of 'titrating to bowel-tolerance': http://doctoryourself.com/titration.html
In the following table therein (worth reading the whole article though, for understanding what it impies) one can see bowel-tolerance limit is high individual, worse it can fluctuate greadly from day to day:
TABLE I - USUAL BOWEL TOLERANCE DOSES
GRAMS ASCORBIC ACID NUMBER OF DOSES

severe cold 60 - 100+ 8 - 15

Someone in good health can only tolerate 4-10g before a flush. Someone with something harmless as a seasonal rhinitis, which I have, can easily tolerate 50g in devided doses throughout the day, until the flush comes. With an additional cold it adds up easily to 150 g, where it starts to become really difficult to reach.
Because ascorbic acid is acidic, one has to delute 1 teaspoon in at least 100ml of water. Assuming 5g per teaspoon, thats an additional 4.5 liter of water a day! Clearly too much, making one having to urinate troughout the night.
One workaround I found, just put 1 teaspoon full straight on the toungh, and swallow down with a gulp of water. Or simply use more per glass of water, and mask the sour taste with enough of stevia-extract.
The huge difference to just trying ascorbic acid is: one takes it per 1-2 teaspoons up to every 20 minutes throughout a day.
Only beneficial side-effects. Never had the occasional hemorrhoids again. In fact, an allgedly irreversible walking-disabitity for PAD went into remission. Took in average 25 g/d for 13 years now.
What form do you recommend ? Vitamin c and malic acid have worked well for me in the past but that was before such extreme opioid regimens.
Since I need about 3g of elemental Mg throughout the day (additional to 600mg from diet), just to keep very pain-ful muscle cramps away (without increasing Mg-tests in blood from deficient) I use all of them and find no difference. But thats an individual thing. Only malate I don't tolerate before sleep. To get more Mg in a naturally occuring form, I drink 1 liter of a Mg-rich mineral water a day (1 g/l elemental Mg, in the form of sulfate). All I personaly know can only drink 1 glass of it, before having to go to the toilet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donat_Mg
Thats also the amount my father took, before finding its not even needed additional to the ascorbic acid every 2nd day.
