Comment:
I take two lots of 300 mg of magnesium daily and have found it to significantly reduce the occurance of migraine. It is also great to take at the onset of a headache or migraine to reduce the serverity of the attack. Helps with anxiety immensely and if unable to sleep. I highly recommend migraine sufferers to give it a try.

Comment:
Was told to take this with Calcium, however, I'm apparently sensitive to magnesium as it caused severe diarrhea, nausea and vomiting after only 1 dose at 250 mg. Tried taking lower dosage and experienced same problems...simply cannot take magnesium.
