Just what's in dark chocolate, my doctor does not recommend extra for me.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Yes, I have taken it for many years. People with PCOS tend to be low in magnesium, and I have fibro as well. I also know that I am not getting nearly enough in my diet.

If you "lost" more than six pounds...it sounds like you really need some!

I just started to take it again, along with calcium before bedtime because it's supposed to promote sleep.

I used to take it every day for pre-menstrual syndrome, it worked very well and kept my hormonal mood swings under control. Can't afford it any longer but thank goodness one of the benefits of the menopause is that periods stop, ha ha.

Yes, I take in the evening. It works well for keeping things regular!

My neurologist recommended magnesium to help get rid of menstrual related migraines that weren't helped by the medication I'm taking already. So, for about 10 days a month I take magnesium and it seems to work wonders. I try to take it all the time, but I'm really bad about taking the meds I absolutely need so it doesn't always work out.
I do agree with previous posters that it is one of those things that you should check with your doctor first if you have a medical problem you're being monitored for.

I have stage IV breast cancer, I take magnesium on the recommendation of my oncologist, as the chemo I am on depletes the magnesium from my body. I also find it helps with leg cramps.

Talk to your doctor first, especially if you're taking any other medication. Minerals like magnesium can change your blood chemistry or affect how your body absorbs medications. Your doctor will also have an idea of whether you're already getting enough magnesium from your drinking water. In some parts of the country, there's so much in the water that you really shouldn't take any more.

Yes, but not for any specific condition other than my labs indicate I need to increase the level.

Oh believe me I know but I was looking for any kind of natural relief but I think just taking it once a week will be good enough for my system...

There is not much that can be done other than exercise and Ibuprofen, etc. From my research I find Fibromyalgia is just one of those things doctors have a hard time diagnosing much less cure.

I was told at a health store that if you have lyme or fibromyalgia that you should be taking magnesium. I use a lot of motrin for inflammation and pain to take the edge off and of course it backs you up... lady said the magnesium should ease some pain, help with stress and make u regular and u can take up to 2 pills a day.
Well I took one since Wednesday and I have never been so regular in my life!!!!!!!!!!!! even with the mortin.
So don't waste your money on exlax hahaha buy some magnesium instead hahaha and I'd suggest just taking one to see how it works on ya , cause I can't even imagine if I had taken to in a 5 day span then the 2 a day she suggested hahaha.
I went on the scale when I woke up it said one number I went to the bathroom after and I literally lost 6 1/2 lbs! hahahaha
