I am taking a combination of magnesium oxide and potassium due to muscle cramps. When I opened the magnesium the smell of ammonia was overpowering. The expiration date is Aug. 2015. Is this smell normal?

Went in the kept me 12 hrs, run all kinds of tests, and ended saying no heart problem, but I was low on magnesium, so prescribed me 400mg per day, so far so good.
