It is well known that as the baby grows and develops in the womb of the mother, the need for women in useful and nutritious substances increases at times. Increases during pregnancy and the need for a trace element, such as magnesium, a deficiency which is not always possible to make up only with the consumption of foods rich in this valuable substance. And in this case, doctors can raise the question of the use of magnesium preparations, often giving preference to the medicine Magnerot.
Magnesium is one of the microelements that takes part in the metabolism, regulates the contractions of the heart muscle, facilitates the body's reactions in stressful situations. With a lack of magnesium, the need for which increases during pregnancy, the consequences can be dangerous, both for the mother and the baby.
Thus, the magnesium deficiency in the mother provokes cramps (primarily the calf muscles), can lead to spontaneous abortion or premature birth, lead to the development of preeclampsia or eclampsia. For the fetus, the lack of magnesium can be dangerous by the development of chromosomal abnormalities and embryonic malformations, cause a slowdown in development or provoke embryonic edema.
Thus, the first indications for which Magnerot is administered during pregnancy are: the threat of miscarriage or premature birth, as well as the risk of developing pre-eclampsia or eclampsia. In addition, Magneroth during pregnancy can be appointed as a preventive measure and with the aim of excluding the possible consequences of stress conditions.

In addition, before the appointment of a drug, it is desirable to pass a biochemical blood test to the level of magnesium. Usually Magnerot is given a sufficiently long course - at least 4-6 weeks, if necessary, can be used even longer, until the end of pregnancy.

Take the tablets should be an hour or 4 hours after eating, squeezed with a small amount of water.
In most cases, the drug Magneroth during pregnancy is well tolerated. In rare cases, side effects are possible in the form of short-term stool disorders.
