Reply To: Enteral magnesium supplementation- Least GI toxicity?
We’ve used Bronson Magnesium Complex (300mg) since the onset of our program. The product rep has been at every transplant conference I’ve ever attended.

What formulation of enteral magnesium do others find causes the least GI toxicity in patients? We currently use magnesium oxide or magnesium sulfate, and find both contribute to GI distress which complicates our GVHD assessment and tolerability/need for home IVF at time of discharge.
Does your center have a good experience with magnesium glycinate? If so, are there specific generic or brand name forms you use? Or is there another formulation of magnesium that you find works well?
Many thanks in advance!
