Can i add magnesium supplement to my diet for my migrain?
NO: You can not overdose on magnesium if your kidneys are normal as the excess will be removed in urine or stool as magnesium causes diarrhea. Since you take Phentermine which can increase heart rate and cause arrythmias the concomitant use of magnesium has potential to cause harm as high level of magnesium can affect heart rate. Stop your Phentermine and then you can take magnesium supplements. ...Read more

How much magnesium glycinate should I take against 600mg of elemental calcium (carbonate) and 400iu vitamin D3 for osteoporosis?
About 400- 600 mg: There is no consensus. Some experts advise a 2:1 ratio of cal. To mag others advise a 1:2 ratio. I feel a 1:1 ratio is reasonable. Calcium carbonate is relatively poorly absorbed; citrate is much better. Mag glycinate is well-absorbed. Most adults need 5000 iu of d in fall ; winter for optimal levels. I advise adding vit k to your regime-see http://bit.Ly/1a48ofs ; http://bit.Ly/18qtb7y. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i take a multi vitamin along with my calcium and vitamin d? I take 1200 mg of calcium and 800 iu of vitamin d3.
Try another meal: While it might not pose a problem, high dose calcium can interfere with some other vit/mineral absorption. So if you are going to take it, it might as well have a chance to help you. I would suggest separating the MVI (multivitamin) from the ca+vitd to different meal times / times of day. ...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)?
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.

Is Magnesium Oxide 300mg with Manganese 4mg(Manganese amino acid chelate 40mg*11mgUpper Limit)for
Migraine Aura or is Magnesium Citrate Best Option?
Doubt, but try it: The sporadic use of magnesium oxide provides no side effects unless you have hypermagnesemia ( high magnesium levels) which is not expected unless you take long term daily medicines that increase magnesium as spironolactone, amiloride, and milk of magesia. You can try mag oxide one daily around the period and if works, fine you got your answer. ...Read more
Do i take vitamin b complex with magnesium or can I take vitamin B12 ? For better absorption of magnesium. Currently also take vit D3 thanks
OK but not 4 absorb.: It is perfectly fine to take b complex/b12 with magnesium but won't enhance absorption. Magnesium is best absorbed on an empty stomach ; b vits can cause stomach upset on empty stomach. B vits, esp. B6, often work in synergy with mag. The best-absorbed forms of mag. Are glycinate ; taurate; citrate is ok too. Epsom salt baths ; topical "magnesium oil" are also good ways to get magnesium into you. ...Read more
