Are there any good  over-the-counter medications for IBS c  I have been taking probiotics metamusal and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide)?

IBS: I would recommend that you do a food dairy and see which foods you are allergic (ibs pts have allergies). The most common are dairy and gluten. You can try a to do a food elimination diet where you eliminate an entire food category for 1-2 weeks to see if you improve. I would recommend a high strength probiotic of 80 billion. For constipation i would recommend taking mag 500-1000 mg per night. ...Read more

What is better for anxiety? Magnesium citrate or oxide?

What is better for anxiety? Magnesium citrate or oxide?

Either: The magnesium is what might help with anxiety. The citrate could be easier to absorb than the oxide, but the oxide is a little more economical. Be aware that magnesium supplements can cause loose stools, so use divided doses and increase gradually. You need about 320mg/day of magnesium from all sources including food -- possibly more if under significant stress. Stools can be your dosing guide. ...Read more

I am wonder whiich type magnesium is better for heart palpatations mag oxide or mag citric.

Depends: You may consider potassium magnesium aspartate in combination with taurine. Make sure you see a cardiologist to rule out serious heart problems. But if not cause can be found, chances are it may be an electrolyte imbalance. Potassium and magnesium are commonly low. ...Read more

Can I take Licorice and Rehmannia for adrenal support while taking Vit E, basic B complex,Vit C, fish oil,magnesium,zantac,and Imitrex (sumatriptan) (when needed)?

Can I take  Licorice and Rehmannia for adrenal support while taking Vit E, basic B complex,Vit C, fish oil,magnesium,zantac,and Imitrex (sumatriptan) (when needed)?

Not good combination: Consult you doctor before doing anything, versus self medicate especially with your thyroid condition not being stabilized and taking migraine meds. Licorice can increase cortisol levels and make your migraines worse. Always better to be safe than sorry. Can also call your pharmacist to ask about drug/herb/supplement interaction for more information. ...Read more

What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

Diff. absorption and: Magnesium always occurs as a salt in combination with other things such as chloride, oxide, glycine, citrate, taurine etc. Some forms are poorly absorbed; for example magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed, so it does not raise magnesium much but is a good laxative. The best-absorbed are glycinate and taurate and those amino have benefits. See https://www.organicnewsroom.com/magnesium-supplements/ ...Read more

Is it safe to take cipralex with magnesium and b50 complex? i also take ferrous sulfate, vit d, probiotic and vit c daily...Is it ok this combo

Is it safe to take cipralex with magnesium and b50 complex? i also take ferrous sulfate, vit d, probiotic and vit c daily...Is it ok this combo

Do you eat Food?: B50 Complex doesn't ring a bell but it sounds like some type of B Complex pill. There's nothing adverse with the combination of Cipralex & the things you've mentioned but what does jump out at me is the sheer number of supplements you take. Is that necessary? Shouldn't you be eating more REULAR and HEALTHY food? No matter how many supplements you take; it's not the same as real food. Be Well! ...Read more

Multivitamin has 100% daily vitamin B12 (6 mcg) and B6 (2 mg), and 50 mg magnesium. Can I still take b-complex drops and slowmag (magnesium chloride)?

Multivitamin has 100% daily vitamin B12 (6 mcg) and B6 (2 mg), and 50 mg magnesium. Can I still take b-complex drops and slowmag (magnesium chloride)?

Yes: The amounts that are in your multivitamin, so it is safe to take an additional b-complex and magnesium chloride. The question really should be if you need to take these. There are certain conditions for which it is a good idea to take a multivitamin or even higher dose vitamins/minerals/other supplement, but many people don't need to take anything additional over a healthy diet. ...Read more

Hi , i was wondering if a calcium supplement which also has vitamin d, manganese, magnesium, boron and vitamin K good for you?

Hi , i was wondering if a calcium supplement which also has vitamin d, manganese, magnesium, boron and vitamin K good for you?

Yes! : This sounds like a formula well-designed for bone health. Supplements work in symergy. You can't absorb calcium if you are low in vit d. Vit k makes sure the calcium goes to your bones instead of arteries. Boron improves bone density and magnesium and manganese are also important for bone health. ...Read more

Constipated so doc said try Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Will laxative disrupt the gut flora and cause C Diff? I've had C Diff 3 times and worry. It gave me PTSD

Constipated so doc said try Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Will laxative disrupt the gut flora and cause C Diff? I've had C Diff 3 times and worry. It gave me PTSD

Safe laxative: C difficile usually overgrows because an antibiotic kills off the more friendly bacteria. We've used milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) for centuries but only saw C diff colitis with the heavy use of antibiotics. Constipation itself is dangerous. I'm sorry your illness gave you PTSD and I would encourage you to work with someone who can help you process these memories and recover your strength. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have been taking magnesium glycinate for IBS-C, anxiety and high cholesterol. Is there any proof it can help treat any of these?

I have been taking magnesium glycinate for IBS-C, anxiety and high cholesterol.  Is there any proof it can help treat any of these?

No: there is no proof that this works for any medical problem. Magnesium is a laxative so you may notice improvement in the IBS. However, it is not good to use magnesium on a regular basis for constipation as a first-line therapy. There is the possibility of developing increased magnesium levels, which can be dangerous. Initially you should increase fiber in your diet and your fluid intake. Good luck. ...Read more
