What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?,   Am deficient in magnesium

Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs. I recommend following label directions and increasing by one dose per night until 8 doses or loose stool. If you get to loose stool, consider that one dose too many. Most people only need 2 or 3 doses per day, and it could be taken all at bedtime. ...Read more

For 6 days i took about 1500mg chelated magnesium and stopped after noticing muscle and joint pain/clicking/stiffness. Could the mag have caused this?

Generally intake of calcium should be twice the dose of magnesium. Potassium's also important; so eat foods rich in magnesium, calcium, & potassium. Extra fiber may be necessary since calcium tends to constipate. Heat & stretching will help too. ...Read more

Could chelated magnesium be used for tachycardia as an alternate to atenolol? And how much per day? Heart is fine due to benzodiazepine withdrawl.

Could chelated magnesium be used for tachycardia as an alternate to atenolol? And how much per day? Heart is fine due to benzodiazepine withdrawl.

Possibly: Magnesium often helps tachycardia; whether it can be an alternative to atenolol for you is impossible to know until you try it, but if not a complete alternative it may allow you to reduce your atenolol dose. I advise magnesium taurate or glycinate with 400-800 mg of magnesium; if you take more than you can absorb you'll get loose stools, in which you can cut back. ...Read more

Can i take magnesium with amino acids together? Also, what vitamins and minerals should I not take with mg. Affecting absorption?

It should not: Magnesium might interfere with some medications but not Amino Acids absorption. Why would you need to take Amino Acid supplement? Is it better that you eat a balance diet with enough protein, which would give you plenty of amino acids? It is more natural and complete variety of Amino Acids including the essential ones. Only in severe food allergy that you need a complete Amino Acid diet. ...Read more
