NO!!!!: What are you taking levamisole for? It is no longer used in human health, and was taken off the market because of its dangers. Levamisole has recently shown up as a cutting agent in cocaine, and has resulted in many cases of dangerously low white blood cell counts, serious infections, and can cause an inflammation of small blood vessels which can have serious effects on health and life itself.

Worm medicine: levamisole was used to treat certain helminthic (worm) diseases in humans, but was pulled from the human medicine market because of serious side effects, and now is rarely used even in veterinary practice because of the same kinds of side effects - very low white counts, severe and serious infections and inflammatory/autoimmune disorders.

I have vitiligo patches on my lip and palms. (hereditary from maternal grand father) please suggest any good medication. Taking levamisole 100 mg daily.

Add corticosteroids: Given your genetic history, it is often important to know the underlying genetic alteration as it helps determine treatment effectiveness. Immune system modifers like levamisole have shown to be very effective. There are studies which show even more improvement with either topical corticosteroids or oral corticosteroids in addition to the levamisole. Also avoid proton pump inhibitors.

Safety: Safe is as few injections as you need to get relief. However if you need these injections regularly, safe is a relative term but typically around 3-4 injections/year. Some patients can have as many as 3 injections per 6 months however that is not a good idea for too long.

How often can you take magnesium citrate safely?

Depends on kidneys: Mag citrate has 2 benefits: treats constipation and prevents kidney stone formation. However, if you take mag citrate chronically, you need to check with your doctor because build up of magnesium in the blood could cause heart rhythm abnormality that is occasionally fatal (ventricular tachycardia). Kidney weakness decreases magnesium excretion and builds it up in the blood.
