Try 250 mg magnesium twice daily or breaking your 400 mg in half if possible. If I take more than 250 at once it is SCARY! Also, take one of the fish oils and pierce it with a fork and smell it to make sure the batch is fresh... Old/rancid ones will have a bad odor and you don't want to take those.
Thanks for responding. I didn't take anything this am and was PLAGUED by PVCs all day. I took a mag when I got home (can't break cuz they're the oil ones) and have had a little relief. I will try a few days then add the fish oil to see which triggered it. I got really good quality fish oil, so it isn't that. I read where fish oil can have an extreme laxative effect. We'll see.
Oh, I must say, I don't have any problems at all with my digestion? But I always make sure I take my fish oil and the magnesium with a meal (breakfast and dinner). Maybe try that if you haven't already? Or start with a lower dose as Colleen 1964 suggested, your digestive system might need to get used to all this first? My Magnesium pills aren't "oil-pills", what did you mean by that?
Someone here posted that mag oil is better to absorb and better for the kidneys so I got the oil (there is a liquid, but it was MAJOR expensive). I do take everything with food. Guess that is why it came out so quickly. hahaaha
Well, maybe oil n' oil don't mix so well (or too well, ha ha ha), it might have just been an oil-overdose for you :)
I always take a medication with side effects just before bed, if possible. In the case of the symptoms you suffered, that many not be a good idea.
Still, split meds if you can, some of my pills are only in the morning (Metoprolol ER) and only in the evening (Warfarin, Simvastatin). I don't think any of these interact, but ...
I am again taking fish oil and glucosamine in the morning, but that's for joint pain, not for my heart.. but I'll take it if it helps the heart too.
None of the above cause me any digestive problems.
I cut down to one mag oil a day and have been okay. I must introduce the fish oil back in and see if that was the culprit.
I take 2400 g.s of fish oil a day. for about a year now i have had excessive bloating and gas also loose oily stools for days at a time. Has anyone ervr had these side effects? I had a colonoscopy 2 weeks ago to make sure it was not my colon . scan run on stomach, no problems there either. but the diarraha and gas are almost more than I can stand. Am going to stop fish oil for a week or so to see if this is creating my trouble. Any one help with this, or confirm I am not out of my mind with all this?
Hello ... the magnesium you should take for heart palps is magnesium taurate it is highly absorb able and does not give you diarrhea.. I had the same problem as you until I started taking this form of it. It has really helped with my palpitations and anxiety .
