Treat Yo Self (Team 14) - Magnesium for Asthma
Top 5 things a pharmacist should let patients know: 1. Magnesium can cause toxic effects in people taking certain blood pressure medications, or affect minerals like fluoride, phosphate supplements or levothyroxine. 2. Further studies need to be done for proof, but magnesium may help with asthmatic symptoms. This is more commonly used to treat constipation or low magnesium levels in the body. 3. How it works: Magnesium prevents your muscle cells from taking in calcium, and it's the calcium that makes the muscle in your lungs tighten up. So, your lungs will relax and help you breathe better. 4. Some common side effects you may experience are diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. It's always important to stay hydrated. 5. Contraindications include: Don't take magnesium if you have kidney or heart disease, or if you are pregnant. References: Natural Medicines. Food, Herbs, & Supplements. Magnesium.

Avoid use if you are taking “blood thinning” drugs like warfarin, or if you are at a high risk of bleeding. 4. Side effects include stomach upset, headaches, and difficulty sleeping. 5. Dosing: 1,200mg of chondroitin and 1,500 to 3,000mg of MSM taken by mouth with food daily in 1 or divided doses. References: 1.
