    Hey Bigmarlon, probably best to take magnesium in the morning, as it may send you to the bathroom an hour or two later.

    I take magnesium in the morning with potassium, taurine and a multivitamin with breakfast without ill effects.

    Also, FWIW, I took 81 mg aspirin for many years as well as fish oil and saw palmetto until I started blood thinners (Pradaxa) after my cardioversion at which time I was advised by my cardiologist (EP), primary care physician and pharmacist to stop taking all three as it increased bleed risk with blood thinner.

    You may want to check with your care providers about the aspirin with your blood thinner.

    Regards,

    Patrick

    Hello mate,

    I'm wondering why you're called Bigmarlon, weight, height or both? 

    Weight is relevant of course. And you can become slim;  :-)

    I was told by my cardiologist not to take magnesium!  I'm on metoprolol and Pradaxa, also Citalopram an anti depressant for anxiety, cased by this damn a.fib!  Best check first.   I'm disappointed as I've heard it's very necessary for us folk.

      Hi Pauline....I was  curious  to why the doctor told you to stop taking magnesium? I have been taking magnesium for over five years not sure if it really helps I guess I’ll know if I stop taking it.

      Hi Diana, I wasn't taking it, but asked him if I should consider it and he said No!  I'm still always considering should I try, but a bit scared.  Next time I see him I'll ask him.  All the best.

      He didn't say Diana, I also asked my GP and he said if the consultant said no, then take his advice.  I will ask him him when I see him on my next appt.  what type of magnesium would you recommend, and at what strength?  All the best to you

      You’re welcome, Pauline! You can also go to drugs.com and check for interactions, side effects, etc. My insurance company Florida Blue also provides free drug counseling over the phone with a Doctor of Pharmacy which I found most helpful. I just told her all the medications and supplements I was taking and she checked for interactions and sent me a full report. My primary physician and cardiologist (EP) supported all of her recommendations.

      Lastly, to answer your question, I get magnesium, potassium and taurine supplements at the local health food store. Since they are not prescriptions, you can also get them online.

      Good luck!
