Case scenario

Jedda, 27, presents to your pharmacy requesting a magnesium supplement for unexplained muscle weakness over the past few months. On further discussion, she reveals she is very happy to have lost 5 kg without having to increase her exercise and believes her muscle pain is magnesium-related.

Jedda mentions she has trouble sleeping at night because she always gets too hot when her partner is always cold.

Jedda currently takes levonorgestrel 150 microgram and ethinylestradiol 30 microgram daily and has no other medical conditions or allergies. She mentions that she smokes socially, and her grandmother had problems with her ‘digestion and thyroid’.
