I've had migraines for about 20 years, but they were much more painful and more frequent after a full hysterectomy. I saw a neurologist and he prescribed Topamax, which was worse than the headaches! He also suggested Magnesium, B2 and Co Q-10 and this combo has done wonders. It's relatively inexpensive and natural. I like that I'm not putting more chemicals into my body, but rather sup ...

I read from another website about Magnesium for tension headaches. I picked up a bottle of Calcium/magnesium/vitamin d supplement and it has helped with my tension headaches. I haven't had a migraine since. Its been about 3 weeks. I usually get them once or twice a week. From the dosage on the bottle, I take 3 pills which equal to 480mg of magnesium per day. Hope this helps someone.

Magnesium has saved my life in regards to my horrible migraines. I've suffered from these debilitating monsters since I was around 12 and have just found MY cure this year. I am now 41..... Why couldn't a doctor figure that out?!!!! All I did was a little online research tried a low dose magnesium regime and I just don't get migraines anymore!

I have had migraines now for over 10 years. I used to get them 2 to 3 times a week. Now I get them 50% less! I take 600mg of Magnesium CITRATE three times a day. So 200mg in the morning, 200mg at lunch, and 200 mg at dinner. I've been doing this (along with 400mg of B2) for five months now. Make sure you take Magnesium CITRATE (of any form that ends in 'ate'), not Magnesium Oxide t ... Show Full Comment

My husband has been suffering with headache for several years now. He gets 7 or more headaches a week (sometimes twice a day). He lives on Excedrin migraine. I read an article about Magnesium for headache and got some for him. He's been taking it for 3 days along with B6 and has been headache free (with the exception of a very small headache on the 2nd day). This has been a miracle so far! Pra ... Show Full Comment
