Comment:
I take 800 mg in the morning and it works great. A little too much, maybe, so will drop down dosage. It's made a world of difference for me. I would forget how long it would be between times - days on end, but now no problem with that. Happens almost daily for me.

Comment:
I go to pain management for residual pain from sinus surgery that didn't go well. Because I have to depend on narcotic medication for relief, constipation has been a problem. Magnesium (500 mg. once or twice a day) has been very effective, and I no longer feel bloated and lethargic. In addition, the Magnesium has helped my infrequent restless leg syndrome.

I have had to take high doses of Iron for 1 year now. I tried all kinds of over the counter fiber and laxatives! Nothing helped and I was miserable! A friend recommended this to me so I thought I would give it a try! I take 500 a day, but I break it up into 2 50 doses, am and pm. After a week it was a miracle!!! I'm able to go daily now and it has helped aches and pains and restless leg! Happy ... Show Full Comment
