Benefits of Magnesium oxide
In general, Magnesium Oxide is safe to take as a supplement, or as a form of medication on a short term basis. However, there are some known side effects, and consumers should be fully aware before they start taking Magnesium Oxide.
The most common type of side effect is severe diarrhoea, meaning there is an abnormally high frequency of bowel movement, and loose/watery black stools. Other severe side effects or allergic reactions include rashes, lips and facial swelling, dizziness, slower reflexes, and vomit that is brownish black. If any of these symptoms arise after taking magnesium oxide, seek medical attention immediately.
To prevent stomach upset and diarrhoea, you should take magnesium oxide with/after a meal. If you have been prescribed this medication by your doctor, the chances are that your doctor knows your medical history and current medical condition, and has judged you to be able to enjoy the benefits of magnesium oxide rather than to suffer from the risks of its side effects. So the probability of you suffering from severe side effects should be low. Most people who have taken this medication do not suffer from serious side effects. It is also seldom that people suffer from allergic reactions to this drug. However, medical attention must be sought immediately if you notice any of the above symptoms listed.
The list of side effects mentioned above is not comprehensive. There may be other unknown side effects to it. In addition, there are several precautions to note before starting on magnesium oxide as a form of supplement or medication.
Before taking magnesium oxide as a supplement, do inform your doctor or pharmacist of any drug allergies that you have had. This is because the product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. You should also inform your doctor or pharmacist of any health problems that you are having, in particular kidney disease. Patients with kidney problems must exercise extra caution if they want to take magnesium oxide. It is best to avoid taking it altogether for kidney patients.
Magnesium oxide that comes in the form of liquid or powder may contain sugar and/or alcohol. If you have diabetes, alcohol dependence, liver disease, phenylketonuria (PKU), or any other condition that requires you to avoid taking these substances, you should consult your doctor or pharmacist before starting on this supplement/medication.
If you are pregnant, you should refrain from taking this drug. It should only be taken if your doctor thinks that you desperately need it for a medical condition. Remember to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor first. If you are breast feeding, consult your doctor before taking magnesium oxide, as it is not known if this product would be passed into your breast milk. Children below the age of 6 should not take magnesium oxide. Children between the ages of 6 and 12 should take it as a medication only if it has been approved and prescribed by the doctor.
