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
Can someone please tell me if my serum magnesium level of 1.00mmol/l is within the normal range. Many thanks?
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.
