What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?, Am deficient in magnesium
Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs.

Most people only need 2 or 3 doses per day, and it could be taken all at bedtime. ...Read more

Is 1200 mg of lithium carbonate / day an acceptable dosage for the treatment of bipolar? What are the risks of such a high dosage?
Level more important: The blood level is more important than the dose. The kidneys are the way the body gets rid of lithium. Ansaids like motrin, Aleve (naproxen) can double lithium levels at same dose. So can many blood pressure meds- so all your prescribers need to know you are on lithium to avoid interaction. 1200mg is a typical dose. Normal blood levels are betwn 0.5-1.0 , toxic is abover 1.2-1.5. I like <0.8. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
I take 1800mg Neurontin (gabapentin) daily for fibromyalgia, neuropathy, etc. What are upper limits of dosage? Dangers of high dosage & extended use.
3600 mg/day: 800 mg four times a day is the upper limit on neurontin (gabapentin). It is my understanding that taking more than 800 mg with any one dose is a waste as there are limits on absorption past 800 mg per dose. Higher doses can result in increased sedation and in sensitive individuals confusion, gait impairment, slurred speech. Most tolerate it well, however. Please discuss your dosing and concerns with you doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Its use is based on a SUPERSTITION called the "doctrine of signatures:" because the root looks like a headless man, the prescientific ancients had this delusion that it would cure things. It doesn't. Be skeptical. Think critically. Arm yourself with modern knowledge, not ancient superstition. ...Read more
