Medication for High Blood Pressure
I take Prexim, 4mg daily for high blood pressure. Does it contain ACE-inhibitors, as I would like to supplement with Magnesium?

Thank you for your information

Regards

Dear Mary Anne
As I am the Diet Expert I would be happier if you check with the prescribing dr or your pharmacist about Prexum. I checked in my copy of MIMS and it does not mention that magnesium cannot be used concurrently, but rather safe than sorry. So phone your pharmacist or the dr.
