Quá liều
Symptoms: Watery diarrhoea, gastrointestinal irritation; rarely, hypermagnesaemia which includes symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, thirst, flushing, drowsiness, hypotension, confusion, loss of tendon reflexes, muscle weakness, respiratory depression, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac arrest and coma. Management: Administer Ca gluconate 10% 10-20 mL via IV to counteract respiratory depression or heart block. May give adequate fluids to patients with normal renal function to aid removal of Mg in the body. May perform haemodialysis in patients with renal impairment or severe hypermagnesaemia.
Tương tác
May decrease absorption of certain antibiotics (e.g. cefpodoxime, tetracyclines, quinolones), antifungals (e.g. itraconazole), antivirals (e.g. atazanavir, rilpivirine), fexofenadine, bisphosphonates (e.g. alendronic acid, ibandronic acid), corticosteroids (e.g. dexamethasone, deflazacort), antiepileptics (e.g. gabapentin, phenytoin), certain antipsychotics (e.g. sulpiride, chlorpromazine), ACE inhibitors (e.g. captopril), rosuvastatin, chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, proguanil, digoxin, dipyridamole, levothyroxine, mycophenolate, iron preparations, nilotinib, and penicillamine. May increase absorption of ibuprofen. May decrease the excretion of quinidine. May enhance the adverse or toxic effect, particularly metabolic alkalosis, of sodium polystyrene sulfonate. Excretion of salicylates may be increased.
Tác dụng
Description: Magnesium hydroxide stimulates bowel movement by retaining fluid in the intestinal lumen which distends the colon, thus increasing peristalsis. It also neutralises stomach acid by reacting with hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form Mg chloride.
Onset: Bowel movement: 30 minutes to 6 hours.
Pharmacokinetics:
Absorption: Mg: Poorly absorbed from the small intestine (approx 30%).
Distribution: Mg: Crosses the placenta; enters breast milk (small amounts).
Excretion: Mainly via urine (up to 30% as absorbed Mg ions); faeces (as unabsorbed drug).
