Also known as Somnicin, Prenatal Rx 1, Rightstep, Lactocal, Vitafol-One, Folgard Os, Folpace Rx, Mag-Ox 400, Uro-Mag, and Mag-200

Magnesium oxide (MgO), or magnesia, is a white hygroscopic solid mineral that occurs naturally as periclase and is a source of magnesium (see also oxide). It has an empirical formula of MgO and consists of a lattice of Mg2+ ions and O2− ions held together by ionic bonds. Magnesium hydroxide forms in the presence of water (MgO + H2O → Mg(OH)2), but it can be reversed by heating it to separate moisture.
