I have cancer and am being treated with opioids to control pain....having to deal with opioid incuded constipation and have found flushing with vitamin C very effective. however I've been using 10-12grams of vitamin C and am wondering if I should be using ascorbic acid instead of sodium ascorbate to minimize sodium intake.....would appreciate any comments....

You'll experience bowel flush at a lower dose of AA vs. SA, but may damage your gut mucosa.
Rookie, rusty, sub average doc but one that gives results.
