The chance of consuming too much magnesium during pregnancy through food is slim. But when you use supplements, you run the risk of magnesium overdose. Here are some side effects that come with magnesium supplements.

1. Diarrhea and dehydration:

Magnesium supplements can cause intestinal irritation in some pregnant women. This can lead to diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and appetite loss. Untreated diarrhea can even lead to dehydration – a serious concern during pregnancy. If you are on magnesium supplements and are experiencing diarrhea for two to three days, talk to your doctor.

2. Stomach upset:

The last thing you need during pregnancy is nausea and vomiting – morning sickness provides enough of that! But magnesium intake can lead to digestive issues that mimic morning sickness. These symptoms subside within hours of treatment but if they persist, seek medical advice.

3. Medication interactions:

Magnesium supplements are known to interact with certain medications. If you are on antibiotics, blood pressure medication, calcium channel blockers, diabetes medication, etc., talk to your doctor before you start the supplements.

4. Overdose:

If you experience any of the following symptoms after consuming magnesium supplements, head to the ER. Magnesium overdose can be fatal if not treated on time.
Symptoms to look out for:
  • Persistent vomiting
  • Irregular heart rate
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Muscle weakness
  • Low blood pressure
  • Confusion
During pregnancy, your body needs that little extra care and nourishment. But you don’t always need to grab OTC medication and supplements to meet these needs! Just eat healthy and keep in touch with your doctor. Moving further, let’s understand magnesium salts, and how they are useful in pregnancy.
