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.

A mental condition arising from lack of love, affection and recognition, esp. in childhood. Rejected children, orphans.
In rejected children, Mag. finds it's place as a remedy. Due to rejection, there is a greater than usual frustration, as the demands are not fulfilled.
Demands in the form of love, affection, security and recognition. These produce a conflict in them and ultimately anxiety is manifested in dreams and delusions. Dreams of robbers. Dreams of dead. Dreams of being lost in a forest.
Neglected feeling with suppressed emotions
Mental weakness and lethargy
Pacifism: According to Vithoulkas, Magnesiums hate aggression. They get very disturbed by violence. They hate quarrels as quarrels tend to break relationships, which they cannot bear.
