Take spironolactone, phentermine, one a day mutli vit-minerals (with 13% mg) and vit D3 daily. Can i add magnesium supplement to my diet for my migrain?

Take spironolactone, phentermine, one a day mutli vit-minerals (with 13% mg) and vit D3 daily.
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

What are the proper dosages for the following vitamins for 63 -year-old woman: multivitamin, vitamin D, calcium, vitamin E, omega 369, B12, magnesium?

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. Dose varies w/the other vitamins you mention. Need to know more.

How much magnesium glycinate should I take against 600mg of elemental calcium (carbonate) and 400iu vitamin D3 for osteoporosis?

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 more

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.

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

Check with pcp: Check with your pcp before taking vit D supplement. Ask for a vit D level if you've not had one. No need to supplement if your level is normal. Adverse effects if level is too high: https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminD-Consumer/ ...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)?

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. There are certain conditions for which it is a good idea to take a multivitamin or even higher dose vitamins/minerals/other supplement, but many people don't need to take anything additional over a healthy diet. ...Read more

Is magnesium oxide helpful for migraines related to hormones around period?

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
