Magnesium Overload?

(Perth, Australia)

About 2 months I commenced taking a magnesium supplement on the recommendation of my boyfriend who though my sleep problems were associated with this deficiency. I take the supplement in the form of Orpus.

In the last 2 weeks I have had several instances where i have felt extremely dizzy, the room has been spinning, felt weak, and as though my blood pressure was very low (Note i have experienced low blood pressure before and regularly and also am slightly anaemic from time to time as I don't eat red meat although do eat legumes etc and take a multi vitamin supplement.

I have never before experienced the extreme dizziness and room spinning before. Could it be due to the magnesium supplement?

Hi Samantha,

If you feel as though you either:

Have too low of a blood pressure


Are having a Magnesium Overdose

then you should go see a doctor and find out. Both of those are very easy for your doctor to find out, so please do so.

Where are the answers to Samantha Black's post concerning possible Magnesium Overdose?? I recently started taking a liquid Magnesium 1 oz before bed to help with sleep & my crazy Restless Leg Syndrome. 2nd nt in & this morning was all over the place with Samantha's symptoms. Is it interfering with my other medications or too much for me? Or that tiny extra little bit in the Multi-vitamin?
