CarrieSUser Since: Sep 2014Posts: 1I've been suffering from PVCs for about two months. I'm working with a cardiologist and have had lots of tests, but so far, the answer is "your heart appears healthy, so let's just wait and see what happens." So I'm not on any drug therapy yet.

I've been reading here and elsewhere about many people having luck with magnesium as a treatment. I picked up some magnesium citrate pills at the store, and the "recommended dose" is two pills a day, which equals 250 mg of magnesium. That's 63% RDA, and I assume I'm getting more Mg through my diet. For those of you who are using magnesium, especially in citrate form, have you taken the standard 250 mg, or have you taken more?

tim_77User Since: Jul 2014Posts: 27magnesium chloride seemed to be the best for me - i still am taking 1 Slow-Mag a day. slow mag is magnesium chloride combined with calcium. a dose has 36% of your RDA, and when my PVCs were bad i was doubling the doseage.
be careful with magnesium, as it can upset your stomach and cause you to lose even more magnesium and potassium and actually be detrimental!
Potassium seemed to help me moreso than magnesium - from what i've read, magnesium is needed to absorb potassium, and deficiencies of each often come hand in hand. Potassium supplements aren't very strong though, so drinking low sodium v8 (700mg potassium!), drinking pomegranate juice, and eating bananas and raisins seemed to be the biggest help.
my doctor also had me take imodium daily for a week, to make sure i was absorbing all the nutrients that i should have been.

I take 500 in morning and again each evening. Works better when i also take 1000mg of b12
