Mg and HBP?
I have a relative that has had HBP for several years now. She takes Atenolol and Diovan HCT for this. Is also a heavy drinker and around 50-70 lbs overweight. She sweats alot, mostly when sleeping, not to mention big mood swings. Besides a big lifestyle change (that I'm sure she will not adhere to)
I recommended Mg. She unknowingly bought Mg Oxide(400mg) It also has Calcium(1000mg)and Zinc(15mg).
The bottle recommended dosage is 3 times a day. I told her to take at least twice a day. After reading a little more I am thinking 3 might be better, or even more due to the diuretic and drinking. Also is there any problem with her taking this bottle (100 tabs), then switching to a better Mg?
Any advice appreciated.
