Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral that is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves.
Magnesium sulfate injection is used to treat hypomagnesemia (low levels of magnesium in your blood). Magnesium has also been used for numerous other conditions in a variety of settings, including eclampsia and preeclampsia during pregnancy, arrhythmia, and migraine.
Magnesium replacement for low levels of magnesium in your blood is often administered intravenously. Infusion time depends on the dose of magnesium your physician prescribes. An observation time may be required after your magnesium infusion.
