Fortunately, This Rather Dubious

By admin / April 4, 2015

Her maintenance dose would then be 432+108=540mg.  So if she

Was taking the Mag Tab SR her maintenance dose would now be 6

Tablets per day.

When and

How should I decrease the dose?

With watery

Diarrhea decrease the dose by 50%, since this is usually short

Lived, if present at the time of the next maintenance dose

Repeat the above lower dose. Then try to control symptoms with

A 25% lower dose.

Example 4:  Jill

Is taking her maintenance dose of 540mg when she suddenly has an

Episode of diarrhea.  Jill’s next dose is due at

Lunchtime.  So at lunch time she will take 50% which would be

270mg.  For her evening dose she would then decrease her

Maintenance dose to 432 mg which is 25% less than her normal

Dose.

When a very soft

Bowel movement occurs, decrease the next dose by 25%. May need

To alternate doses regularly, such as 75% and 100% of maximum

Tolerated dose.

Example 5:  Jill

Is taking her maintenance dose of 540mg when she  has a very

Soft stool (Almost diarrhea like).  Jill’s next dose is due

At lunchtime.  So at lunch time she will take 75% which would

Be 432mg.  For her evening dose she would then decrease her

Maintenance dose to 432 mg which is 25% less than her normal

Dose.  If her migraines come back she may need to increase

Back up to the 540mg.

Comfortably soft

Bowel movements are desirably objective and should be

Considered optimal.

How to

Use Magonate

Magonate®

Is a magnesium supplement sold by Fleming Co.  It is

Magnesium Gluconate, calcium and phosphorus.  You can use any

Brand of Magnesium gluconate to achieve the same results.

Magnesium Gluconate enters the cell very rapidly and is used up

Within an  hour.  So it is not good for a maintenance

Product because it is used up too quickly and also only comes in

27mg tablets which means you would have to take about 20 tablets a

Day just to get the RDA.  For more information on

Magonate or any of the Magnesium Supplements please visit the Magnesium

Product page.

Magonate

Should be used when you feel acute symptoms coming on.  For

Example if you are taking it for migraine prevention then you

Would take 5 magonate tablets at the first sign of migraine aura

Or pain.   If you are taking it for leg cramps you would

Take 5 tablets at the first sign of leg pain.  You can repeat

The 5 tablets in one hour if your symptoms are not better.

You can repeat the 5 tablets every hour until you get

Relief.  I limit my dose to 20 tablets because of the calcium

In it.  Since I take calcium supplements also.

Usually you will see a significant improvement after the second

Dose.
