Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs. I recommend following label directions and increasing by one dose per night until 8 doses or loose stool. If you get to loose stool, consider that one dose too many.

Generally intake of calcium should be twice the dose of magnesium. Potassium's also important; so eat foods rich in magnesium, calcium, & potassium. Extra fiber may be necessary since calcium tends to constipate. Heat & stretching will help too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could chelated magnesium be used for tachycardia as an alternate to atenolol? And how much per day? Heart is fine due to benzodiazepine withdrawl.
Possibly: Magnesium often helps tachycardia; whether it can be an alternative to atenolol for you is impossible to know until you try it, but if not a complete alternative it may allow you to reduce your atenolol dose. I advise magnesium taurate or glycinate with 400-800 mg of magnesium; if you take more than you can absorb you'll get loose stools, in which you can cut back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The salt rarely causes any differences in the activity of the primary ingredient, but may sometimes alter the potency (the dose you need), or the absorption. Often the differences are only for the purpose of patenting a "different" chemical to be marketed. ...Read more
