magnesium have sulfa

I am taking nature's bounty, magnesium 250mg for leg cramps. I am experiencing some break outs. Although sulfa isn't listed in the ingredients. Does it contain sulfa ## No, they do not. However, it could just be your body reacting to the magnesium itself. While, over the long-term, magnesium can help resolve acne, suddenly starting it may cause brief unexpected break outs, just like when you start any other acne medication. You should also be aware that as reported by the U.S. FDA, it may cause diarrhea. That said, you should be aware that leg cramps are most often caused by being low in potassium, they are not caused as often by low levels of magnesium and calcium. Thus, you may get better results by improving your calcium intake. Your doctor should be able to do a simple blood... ...

magnesium oxide 250 mg

After having heart skips or chest pressure and not being able to take statin drugs, since I was alergic to them.(I had a fever and vomiting for 24 hours), I heard that magnesium relaxes arteries, It stopped the chest pressure and heart skips. I use about 3 or 4 pills a day. It also helps with constipation since I have to take narcotics for pain. I hope this helps someone. Magnesium is very low priced at Walmart. Also, if you are on statins, make sure you take CO Q10, 50 to 100 mg because the statins take that out of your body and your heart needs it for a strong beat. ## I want tablets with 1000 mg of calcium 500 mg magnicium and 1000 iu of d3 Ple inform 3 good brands with price if available ## What dose of Magnesium are you taking?

I am on Aspovor 80mg per day for cholesterol. Can I take a magnesium supplement concurrently? ## Hello, Richard! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between the two, so it should be fine, as long as your doctor approves.

Magnesium with Losartan

I currently take 50 mg losartan daily. Would taking magnesium tartrate pose a risk? ## Nothing specific was found with regards to Losartan and Magnesium interacting with one-another, so it should be okay [1]. What I did read, however, is that it is not recommended to take Magnesium if you consume alcohol regularly. "Excessive ethanol (e.g., alcoholism) may result in increased urinary excretion of magnesium. Avoid high intakes of ethanol while taking magnesium salts." Source: [1] UCLA Health Drug Interactions Checker, always double check with your doctor or pharmacist. ...

Jardiance and magnesium

I started with 10mg of Jardiance around three weeks back. I am already on 2000mg of metformin. Since I started Jardiance I've been suffering badly from thrush, around every 90 minutes I am peeing. Initially I showed around 10 pounds of weight loss and now again I am gaining the weight back.

Shape of Magnesium tablets

I have trouble swallowing pills due to a narrowed throat. My round 250 mg magnesium tablets are sometimes hard to get down. Does anyone know of an oval magnesium tablet, or are they all round? Thanks. ## There are a wide variety of magnesium supplements; some are in pill form and some are in powdered form that you can easily empty and stir into a glass of water. I've personally used the powdered packets that you put in your water and they have good flavor as well. As far as the shape or look of a pill goes, the way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, so you'd really just have to search around and try all the brands out there till you find one that is reasonable for you to take. Otherwise I would suggest opting for the powdered solution. ## ... ...

Magnesium Stearate allergy

I am increasingly sensitive to prescription drugs. I have been researching and have found all the ones I have had reactions to have the inactive ingredient MAGNESIUM STEARATE. It is a soy/palm tree derivative. has anyone been successful in finding RX without this? ## The best thing you can do is to let your pharmacy know of the issue, because their computerized database will automatically check for that ingredient in any medication that is prescribed for you. Learn more allergy details here. However, it may not be the magnesium stearate, at all. It is always possible that you're just sensitive to medications. What types of reactions where you having? ## I am having issue also. Results in breaking out in itchy rash symmetrically on my body. If I break out on one leg or arm, the other... ...

My right bicep when fully contracted is painful, where did I go wrong performing my bicep curls, i am not sure, but maybe I lifted a heavy weight without a proper warmup.

magnesium salicylate and mobic

I just took a Diurex and a mobic within minutes of each other...is this a problem? ## Diurex actually contains Pamabrom, which is claimed to be a diuretic to help with bloating. Mobic contains the active ingredient Meloxicam and is a prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Unfortunately, since Diurex is actually an over the counter supplement and not a prescription medication, its interactions with prescription medications has not been studied, nor has its side effects. You could try asking your doctor or pharmacist if they have any information. Did you have any other questions? ...
