400mg seems to work for me

My pills say 250mg and 63% of daily value. I figured that was for a normal person. Think 2 is too much?

Hannah Mccain 3 years

Hannah Mccain it just really depends on your need. I have heard of people taking up to 800mg. Maybe you should try one early in the day see how you feel and if nothing the other before bed. I don’t know, just a thought.

I read somewhere that 100mg per 10kg of bodyweight is OK. I'm 60kg though and I take 400.

I was considering taking them but I am also on gabapentin and know it can interfere. Anyone else on gaba while taking magnesium?

I didn't know that wow! I was taking gaba but it wasn't working so I stopped.

Christina Elkins 3 years

Christina Elkins yeah. I read that magnesium can interfere with the gaba uptake.

Gabapentin has made the biggest difference for me. Even with my RA. It helps so much. I hate taking meds but that one is one I’m super thankful for having.

Christy Jackson how many times a day and how many mg and I hate taking medication

Christina Elkins 3 years

I take 500 mg once a day at bedtime. My doc told me that “normal” therapeutic doses usually start at 900mg but I’m super sensitive to EVERYTHING so we started low. 600 was too much so 500 it is for me.

Magnesium citrate is mostly used for constipation. LOL. I guess you're keeping regular. You can just search Google for different types of magnesium. That's what I did.
