Potrate: Mb6 solution does not contain vitamin b2 (riboflavin), as far as i can tell. It does contain vitamin b6 (has multiple forms, but pyridoxal phosphate is active & involved in many metabolic reactions). The solution can be used to make urine less acidic -- a good idea if you have uric acid kidney stones. ...Read more
Depends: Both can be used in magnesium diciency. Magnesium Citrate used for bowel irrigation and cause diarrhea. Citric acid will increase stomach acid and assimilation & should be taken with meal. The glycine in magnesium glycinate is an Amino Acid which can help with sleep and feeling calm. Least likely to cause loose stools & should be taken at bedtime. ...Read more
Depends: Both are a good source of elementary magnesium supplement in deficiency. Magnesium cittrate is a laxative and good for constipation but citrate inscreases stomach acid assimilation and worsen pain especailly people with acid reflux or if taken in empty stomach.

Surgery prep says take one bottle of magnesium citrate. bought milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Same or different?
Different: Magnesium citrate is different than milk of magnsesia. Look for citrate in a colored glass bottle usually. Ask the pharmacist if you cannot find it. It is a clear liquid and will cause BM fairly soon after you ingest it so I advise to take it at home. Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) will also cause a bowel movement but not as rapidly. ...Read more
You can after 24hour: Yes you can if magnesia does not work but wait for 12 to 24 hours before you take it. ...Read more
What's your ??: The chemicals you mentioned are generally inactive ingredients to help a active ingredient dissolve and be absorbed in the GI tract. They basically keep the muscle relaxant pill from remaining a solid plug that doesn't get absorbed. ...Read more
Pretty similar: But not precisely the same. Elemental magnesium has a positive charge to it (technically a +2 charge) so the only way to get it into a pill form that you can take orally is to mix it with something that is negatively charged so that the resulting compound is neutral. Chloride and citrate both accomplish this. ...Read more
Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?
Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/. ...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
Different mag salts: You cannot take magnesium alone. It has to be compound with something like oxide, citrate, or sulfate. We call these salts of magnesium. Like the salt of table sodium chloride. But you can take sodium in other forms like sod bicarb (in baking soda). Mag citrate causes diarrhea that's why it is used for constipation. Also, good for preventing kidney stones. Mag ox is used for repleting low mg level. ...Read more
