I am having a period of atrial fibrillation and suffering
with a blotting sensation.The pharmacist recommended "magnesium citrate oral solution" (5 (oz)
and I don't know if it is safe to take it with this ongoing afib. Also if you have a recommendation for something safer. This will be a one time question, not a monthly subscription. Thank you
I would explain as follows:
Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!
I passed carefully through your question and would explain that it is safe to take Magnesium citrate oral solution while having atril fibrillation.
You should also know that magnesium can help reduce tachycardia.
So, it is OK to take it for constipation in your clinical condition.
Anyway, another supplement for constipation, which has no effects on the body is psyllium. It is not absorbed by the gut and it just helps increase the water in the gut and thus reduce constipation.
I hope to have been helpful!
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
