Biktarvy and Magnesium

(1/2) > >>

Sťan_Dublin:
Hi everyone. Im probably being dramatic but I was in the US for a week at the end of August and I drank a good few rehydration sachets (containing 38mgs of magnesium). as I was sweating a lot and not used to the heat (Iím from Ireland )I definitely would have drank one when I was taking my Biktarvy. Just wondering is this a problem?. I feel it wasnít every day but my memory is sketchy. Would this have had much of an impact does anyone think?

Jim Allen:
Hiya,

It happened, and I would not be concerned if it was me. A bit like missing a dose once in a blue moon isn't an issue either just try not to let it become a habit.

Of course, if you are really stressed or worried you could call and talk to the clinic, but I doubt they would or could do anything.

How are you feeling otherwise and how was your trip to the US?

Sťan_Dublin:
Thanks Alan. Yes I think Iím good. I didnít think anything of it until I seen a packet Iíd brought home with me and then seen the magnesium content. I sort of went into panic stations. I could only find one case online of a guy becoming detectable after taking magnesium but he was taking them for months and it was far more than 38mgs.

America was great. Was in New York. Had only ever been there in the winter so it was a totally different experience . The humidity ! 😂 Managed to get a bit of a tan too

Glad to hear it was a good trip.  Have to admit never been to New York during the summer, seems to always be snowing whenever I go.

Sťan_Dublin:
Thanks Alan? lol. Don't know where that came from

Thank you Jim

And feeling good. Over two years since the diagnosis. Best place I've been since that time. Still terrified of dating though  :o
