1 doctor agrees

In brief: 1-2 pills

If his kidney functions are ok he can 250-500 mg magnesium. If he gets diarrhea cut the dosage why he has low magnesium ? Does he take water pills? Does he have muscle aches or pains or muscle cramps high BP or heart problems.
These are some symptoms of magnesium deficiency
