Interactions between your selected drugs
Talk to your doctor before using magnesium/potassium/sodium sulfates for bowel cleansing if you are currently receiving tamoxifen. Bowel cleansing can cause your body to lose electrolytes such as potassium and magnesium. This may increase the risk of an irregular heart rhythm condition that occasionally occurs in some people during treatment with tamoxifen. You should drink plenty of clear liquids before, during, and after the cleansing process to avoid becoming dehydrated. Your doctor may be able to recommend specific fluids you can drink before starting magnesium/potassium/sodium sulfates to help maintain your electrolyte levels. He/she may also want to monitor your electrolyte levels and/or heart rhythm. You should seek immediate medical attention if you develop sudden dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, shortness of breath, or fast or pounding heartbeats during treatment with these medications. In addition, you should let your doctor know if you experience signs and symptoms of low magnesium or potassium blood level such as weakness, tiredness, drowsiness, confusion, muscle pain, cramps, dizziness, nausea, or vomiting. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
