Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredMagnesium gluconate is an over-the-counter (OTC) drug that restores low levels of magnesium in the body. Magnesium levels often drop after severe diarrhea and vomiting, gastrointestinal disorders and kidney diseases. Certain drugs also have these effects. This drug is appropriate for you if have very low levels of magnesium and are not allergic to magnesium gluconate. Consult your doctor before you use magnesium gluconate.
