Electrolytes and Water intake
I'm taking topamax and prozac for migraines and it was recommended by my neuro that i drink at least 80 oz of water a day (topamax causes kidney stones in some folks). I found that 80 oz wasn't enough and that I've developed dry eye and dry mouth among other things. I've increased my water intake to 120 oz including . 5- 1 liter of glaceau smartwater a day which has electrolytes (calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and potassium chloride) but no sodium. I feel better as far as dry eye goes. I'm wondering about electrolytes though. is it possible to get too much? am I drinking enough? I can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone. I know too much sodium is a problem but I'm not getting too much sodium. anyone know how much water is too much and how much electrolytes if any is too much?
I'm not an athlete, I'm a regular person, mom to a toddler and we live in Southern CA, a dry hot area.
