Can anyone tell me if it's safe to take a magnesium supplement? I'm 30+2. I have an health issue and pre pregnancy I just used to take the supplement along side my regular meds prescribed by my consultant but no one has given me the 'yes it's fine to take while your pregnant ' I've just been getting on with how I feel but I can't take it anymore and I'm sure if I was to take the magnesium again my pain and muscle weakness would be eased so much. Can anyone tell me it's safe? I really can't take anymore along side my medical condition and anemia I've just had enough. I don't see my consultant for another 2 weeks. Thanks in advance

Here's a study:

It doesn't seem to do any harm. Which is a relief, as I take it to help my mental health!
