Magnesium Compounds

Inorganic compounds that contain magnesium as an integral part of the molecule.
DrugDrug NameDrug Indication
DB01377Magnesium oxideIndicated for over-the-counter use as a supplement for cardiovascular and neuromuscular health, and as an antacid for relief of acid indigestion and upset stomach.
DB13249Magnesium silicateMagnesium silicate is used to absorb moisture, prevent caking, and to improve the feel of a product. In the pharmaceutical companies, it is used as a dietary supplement, as part of the formulation ingredients in drug production, in antacid and antiulcer preparations, as a component of antiepileptic drugs, in antifungal topical agents and in the treatment of acne and as a facial moisturizer.[L2603] When complexed with arginine, magnesium silicate can be used as an antiatherosclerotic agent and to promote bone and cartilage formation in mammals.[T186]
DB00653Magnesium sulfateUsed for immediate control of life-threatening convulsions in the treatment of severe toxemias (pre-eclampsia and eclampsia) of pregnancy and in the treatment of acute nephritis in children. Also indicated for replacement therapy in magnesium deficiency, especially in acute hypomagnesemia accompanied by signs of tetany similar to those of hypocalcemia. Also used in uterine tetany as a myometriat relaxant.
DB08938MagaldrateNot Available
DB09104Magnesium hydroxideMagnesium hydroxide can be used as an antacid or a laxative depending on the administered dose. As an antacid, it is used for the temporary relief of heartburn, upset stomach, sour stomach or acid indigestion. As a laxative, it is used for the relief of occasional constipation by promoting bowel movements for 30 minutes and up to 6 hours.
DB09281Magnesium trisilicateFor the treatment of peptic ulcers. Relieving indigestion and heartburn.
DB09407Magnesium chlorideMagnesium chloride is used in several medical and topical (skin related) applications. Magnesium chloride usp, anhydrous uses as electrolyte replenisher, pharmaceutic necessity for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis fluids.
DB09511TalcIndicated to prevent recurrence of malignant pleural effusions in symptomatic patients during thoracoscopy or open thoracotomy.
DB13322HydrotalciteNot Available
DB13359Magnesium aspartateNot Available
DB13486Magnesium peroxideNot Available
DB13749Magnesium gluconateMagnesium gluconate is a mineral supplement which is used to prevent and treat low levels of magnesium. Magnesium is very important for the normal physiologic functioning of cells, nerves, muscles, bones, and the heart. Generally, a well-balanced diet provides the necessary amounts of magnesium for homeostasis. However, certain conditions causing chronic magnesium deficiency may decrease levels of magnesium. These conditions include treatment with diuretics, a poor diet, alcoholism, or other medical conditions (e.g., severe diarrhea/vomiting, stomach/intestinal absorption problems, poorly controlled diabetes) [L2600].
DB13786Magnesium orotateNot Available
DB09481Magnesium carbonateUsed as an over the counter antacid [L593].
DB11110Magnesium citrateMagnesium citrate has been used in bowel preparations prior to a colonoscopy as a cathartic agent.[T215] It is also used in over-the-counter products to relieve occasional constipation.[L2841] Magnesium citrate can be one of the forms used for the administration of dietary supplements.[L2842]
