Magnesium: Does anyone take magnesium... - National Migraine...
Started taking Nature Made Magnesium Citrate,125mg about 6 weeks ago. My sleeping time has improved. I have read that the citrate may cause bowl problems, which I hadn't experienced. One thing that did bother me about the Nature Made Magnesium pill, was the size of the pill! It' s like a horse pill. Got lodged in my throat one time, had to drink a lot of water. ..So I went looking for a smaller pill and found Magnesium Glycinate in powder form from the Vitamin Store, 400mg, around $20.00 for 45 teaspoon in 8oz glass of water. Taste like lemonade. The Glycinate is suppose to not cause bowl problems...As for my migraines, I usually have one every 7-10 days, and that is still happening, can't say for sure if it helps. Need to take it for a longer period. For me, even if it doesn't help the migraines, I will take it for better sleep... Started using Hemp oil under the tongue a few weeks ago and then discovered CBD hemp in pill form, 10mg. once a day. Trying to keep a log of how I feel at the end of the day and in the mornings.
All the doctors I have gone to do the same thing with," take this pill" or "take this pill" to see if it helps the pain. I figure I can do some of that my self.
There is an entire article on magnesium and what type is the best. I have taken magnesium glycinate and it really helps me Here are a few articles that could help :
I agree that it takes at least 3 months to work, but when it does your pain will get less intense, then you will get less in a week. I really recommend this.
I know you are not asking but I also take feverfew 3x a day and this has been amazing for me.
