I would like to try magnesium supplement. What is the difference between magnesium sulfate, oxide, gluconate and aspartate. Are they all the same?

I would like to try magnesium supplement. What is the difference between magnesium sulfate, oxide, gluconate and aspartate. Are they all the same?

No: The sulfate & oxide are magnesium attached to inorganic molecules. They are not harmful, but inadequately absorbed. Oratate, gluconate, & aspartic acid are natural organic amino acids, which effect much greater absorption & magnesium release in the body. These organic forms are more expensive but worth it. A formulation that releases about "500 mg of elemental magnesium" is a good daily dose. ...Read more

I recently started taking 250mg of magnesium and potassium aspartate and am wondering if this is causing the beige/grey stool that I've had for 2 days?

I recently started taking 250mg of magnesium and potassium aspartate and am wondering if this is causing the beige/grey stool that I've had for 2 days?

Not likely: 250 mg of Magnesium-Potassium Aspartate (presumably, 250 mg of each) provides only 50 mg each of magnesium and potassium. Aspartic acid, combined with these minerals, acts as a mineral transporter, to enhance their uptake into cells. I don't know of any reason why this would alter your stool color. ...Read more

I started taking sertraline HCl 25 mg friday morning for anxiety today is my third day on the medication I was going to go out with some friends for a?

Not recommended: I wouldn't recommend use of any additional substances -- including alcohol -- if you have anxiety and/or are getting used to a new medication (like sertaline). Sertraline + alcohol can lead to sedation. Also, drinking alcohol itself can lead to anxiety -- depending on how much you drink, your frazzled neurons can fire in disturbed ways while recovering. ...Read more

Ciprofloxacin HCl 500mg, are there any life changing side effects to taking this medication, if so, what? I am 52 years old and in the past week started to experience numbness off and on in the crotch area. Dr. Prescribed this medication. I was told it I

This: This is an antibiotic and it is not clear how it could be related to numbness in the crotch, although medications can affect people differently. If it doesn't clear up please have your doctor see you again. If you have any back pain, numbness, weakness, pain down your legs, or loss of bowel or bladder control, you may have a spine condition and would need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

When would flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) be indicated for migraine treatment? Also, would it be daily dosing or a prn medication?

When would flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) be indicated for migraine treatment? Also, would it be daily dosing or a prn medication?

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl): Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) is a muscle relaxant & would be used if the migranes were being triggered by muscle tension which is uncommon since most migraines are vascular in nature. I would think if prescribed for migraines it would be prn but there are better choices if you have true migraine headaches that could prevent or treat them. ...Read more

What medication may reduce severe night-time bruxism? Eating thru guards. Already take 10mg flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) for neck oa.

Not drugs...: I usually treat these issues with occlusal splints coupled with a steroid for the first week of splint therapy. This works with 99% of cases. A properly-fabricated occlusal splint will do much more than any pill. ...Read more

I started taking sertraline HCl 25mg friday morning for anxiety. It's my third day on the medication. Is it safe to have a few drinks? My doc said yes

"A few" = how many?: First, consider why you doubt your physician's advice. Next -- regarding the safety of "a few" drinks, it depends on the quantity you mean. I wouldn't recommend drinking at all while getting used to sertraline, as adding alcohol can lead to more sedation than expected. Also, drinking alcohol can itself lead to anxiety -- especially in hangovers when your irritable neurons are trying to recover. ...Read more

Medication for cystic acne & saeborrheic dermatitis causing severe migraines. Using isotretinoin, minocycline as HCl BP & desloratadine. Drug reaction?

Medication for cystic acne & saeborrheic dermatitis causing severe migraines. Using isotretinoin, minocycline as HCl BP & desloratadine. Drug reaction?

Stop meds, check eye: If you are having headaches, I would stop the Minocycline and isotretinoin. When given together there is an increased risk of a rare side effect, pseudotumor cerebri. I would have my eyes checked and if no evidence of pseudotumor, restart either the Minocin (minocycline) or isotretinoin, but not both. Migraines can also worsen with Isotretinoin and not affect the eyes, but it definitely needs to be ruled out. ...Read more
