Diarrhea for almost 1.5 weeks. Had to take it due to an allergic reaction to something...bug bite most likely. Swelling in face, lips, mouth, throat. Took with Benedryl.

Comment:
This worked great for gastroparesis(stomach emptying)but had to take 1200mg a day. I started to lose my hearing. Had sever ringing in my ears. Irreversible hearing loss...Ototoxicity as a result of using this drug. Needs to be in the refrigerator which is not easy to be out and needed to eat. Must keep in a cooler when out. Would not recommend for long term use, as I am almost deaf! Scary drug

Comment:
Be very, very careful to avoid taking any magnesium products including antacids. The product sheet states very clearly that hives and a rash are very likely side effects. I accidently took my vitamins and had severe rash and hives all over my body. Wanting to rip your inflammed itching skin from all over your body is not a fun way to spend the evening.
