Creating Waves of Awareness
No books and articles can replace the classical books written by the great masters! But, as a supporting tool, here the commonly used drugs belonging to the Magnesium group are described in a capsule form for easy reference, especially for busy practitioners who do not get time to read large volumes of Meteria medica on regular basis.

Interesting to read the contributions.
I have just been working on a Magnesium Case and came across this table of comparison I made years ago between Mag Carb, Phos, Mur and Sulph - thought it would be useful in this discussion.
Just found some more information
Thanks,very much helpful.
