4. What are the side effects of magnesium sulfate?

The line between a "therapeutic" and "toxic" dose of magnesium sulfate is very thin. In general, the larger the dose, the greater the chance of severe side effects. Doctors can test your blood to see how much magnesium is in it. This will indicate when a "safe" dose has been exceeded. They also can do reflex checks and monitor urine output, which also may indicate when a "safe" dose has been exceeded.

More common side effects






General muscle weakness



Complications (sometimes occurring with magnesium overdose)

Cardiac arrest

Pulmonary edema (lungs fill with fluid; can be fatal)

Chest pain

Cardiac conduction defects

Low blood pressure

Low calcium

Increased urinary calcium

Visual disturbances

Decreased bone density

Respiratory Depression (difficulty breathing)

Muscular hyperexcitability

Rare, Severe Complications

Profound muscular paralysis

Paralytic ileus (intestinal obstruction)

Normal daily recommended intakes in milligrams (mg) for magnesium are generally defined as follows:
