Contraindications to Magnesium Therapy

  1. Kidney failure. With kidney failure, there is an inability to clear magnesium from the kidneys.
  2. Myasthenia gravis. The intravenous administration could accentuate muscle relaxation and collapse the respiratory muscles.
  3. Excessively slow heart rate. Slow heart rates can be made even slower, as magnesium relaxes the heart. Slow heart rates often require an artificial pacemaker.
  4. Bowel obstruction. The main route of elimination of oral magnesium is through the bowel.
