Hi folks - As promised I am updating you on how I have been getting on taking magnesium daily. I started taking it about six weeks ago after asking my doctor if it was ok to take with my other medications. She told me it wasn't a problem and that it might very well be beneficial, though could take a few weeks to show any benefits. Well, I am pretty sure that it has had a positive effect on how much I can do without getting exhausted - I have been gardening for a couple of hours at a time recently without feeling that I am walking up to my neck in water when I've finished! (Sorry that's my way of describing how tired I have felt at times!) I take 2 x 375mg a day, as per dosage on the tub. Not sure if it's ok to name supplier, but the only place I could get it locally sounds like they should sell footwear!
I asked my husband if he had seen an improvement and his response was that I am doing more now than I was. Just to fill you in I am now at 14 mg Pred. after a starting dose of 30 mg.
Hope this helps, obviously I still get tired, can't do what I used to do, but I'm sure it has made an improvement.
Thanks to everyone for this group - couldn't do without it - take care.
