Magnesium sulfate with a chemical formula MgSO4
Injectable magnesium sulfate is used to prevent seizure in preeclampsia, early delivery, and rarely in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Injectively and orally administered in the treatment of hypomagnesemia. It is also a bronchodilator. The oral solution is commonly used as a smoothy laxative. It is used as a fertilizer in soils with low magnesium.
– Restylation of acetylcholine at the site of nerve-muscle binding
– Inhibition of Ca intake into myometric cells (indirect effect)
– A barrier to intracellular intracerebroventricular injection of magnesium, which is dye-dependent and affects the concentration of 10-8 meq. 4. Anticonvulsant effects are due to the blockade of neuronal Ca through the glutamate channel (these canals only exist in the CNS) Seizure is on the cerebral cortex. Anticonvulsant effects without CNS depression in the embryo and fetus.
