magnesium-gluconate

Magnesium Gluconate is a mineral supplement which is used to treat and prevent low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Magnesium is essential to the functioning of cells, nerves, bones, muscles and the heart. A balanced diet usually provides normal blood levels of magnesium, but certain situations can cause your body to lose the substance faster than you can replace it. Such situations can arise from treatment with "water pills" (diuretics), alcoholism, a poor diet, or other medical conditions. Magnesium Gluconate costs around $15 for 90 capsules (500 mg).

Magnesium gluconate is classified as an essential mineral, which adds magnesium to the body if magnesium levels are low.

Consult with your doctor for specific dosing instructions for this medication for the treatment of your condition.

A 500 to 1000 mg of Magnesium Gluconate should be taken orally 3 times a day.

This may not be a complete list of warnings. Consult with your doctor regarding possible risks associated with taking this medication, and refer to the warning label on your medication for more information.

Some severe side effects include: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); nausea; slow reflexes.
