If I take a 64 mg magnesium supplement, can I take a multivitamin with magnesium in it?

My doctor told me to take a slow-release magnesium supplement as well as a women’s multivitamin. Is it okay to take a multivitamin containing magnesium if I am already taking 64 mg of magnesium every day?

    There is even no problem with 2000mg magnesium a day. Your doctor is Not a nutritionist!

      Doctors are trained to be an idiot - no more. I am a better doctor even than my but I get a sick leave if I need. That is the only purpose I go to a doctor.

    Probably. I take 250mg per day, The amount of magnesium in multivitamins is usually pretty low.

    But it's always a good idea to check with your doctor on something like this. Perhaps he doesn't want you getting more than 64 mg.
