Could chelated magnesium be used for tachycardia as an alternate to atenolol? And how much per day? Heart is fine due to benzodiazepine withdrawl.

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 more

My magnesium level is:0,64 mmol/L (ref: 0,75-1 ).I`m taking daily 250 mg magnesium,but it seems to be not enough.How much is recommended in this case?

Review with your doc: Magnesium is one of those minerals that can cause a lot of problems if you take too much of it. The recommended dietary allowance of magnesium is 320 mg; getting this from food sources is entirely safe. Taking more through supplements may cause diarrhea, nausea/vomiting. I'm not sure why you think 250 mg is not enough, but taking up to 320-350 per day should be safe. But check with your doctor:) ...Read more
