Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

magnesium hydroxide cholecalciferol

Applies to: Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)

Using cholecalciferol together with magnesium hydroxide can lead to elevated magnesium blood levels, particularly in individuals with reduced kidney function. Symptoms of high magnesium levels may include nausea, vomiting, flushing, drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, muscle weakness, reduced reflexes, low blood pressure, slow heart rate, and impaired breathing. You should seek medical attention if you experience these symptoms. If you are on dialysis and treated with cholecalciferol or other vitamin D medications, you should generally avoid taking products that contain magnesium without first talking to your doctor, as high levels of magnesium over time can lead to bone problems. 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.
