I started taking 400 mg of mag. capsule and started waking up at night with really dry mouth. Had to get up several times to drink water. I stopped taking the supplement and this problem went away.
Maybe I should take the supplement early in the day - possible mid morning- and drink water all day.

Has anyone else experienced a reaction with magnesium?


Ok. So I couldn't take the supplements so I order the Mag. Oil and I have been using on my skin tags for apprx 1.5 weeks. The same thing is happening. I woke up last night with extremely dry mouth, dry nose, and dehydrating feeling. I got up drank some water and went back to bed but couldn't go back to sleep.

Do I need to delute the MO 1/2 in 1/2? I have heard and read so many wonderful things about Mag. that I wanted to give it a try but I can not put myself thru this anymore.

What should I do?

my personal experience....for children up from 12 years...might be ok just the half of dosages of adults....
in this case ...100m's of real mg won't harm,  but no oil coz it wont' work in cases of lacks. 2x daily for women between 3-600m's daily but mg-citrat  .....up to you to get the mix from orotat &aspartate...a question of bioavailability  ....

I stopped putting the Mag. oil on my skin tags until I can get my body back on track. I sleep better last night and didn't have to get up and drink water. I searched on the interenet yesterday for side effects of MO but never could find anything on dehydrating the body. I guess no one else on this thread has this problem but me. It is so weird and such an eerie feeling. I have also had a lot of thick mucous in my throat. Not sure if this is some kind of detox or not.

I also thought about the fact that A's have thick blood and maybe it can't break down the MO-which is very salty. Things like this drive me crazy until I figure it out.

I am a regular user of MO, for a long time. I have never experienced anything like that. It moisturises my skin beautifully.

Dr D...for things like chromium, MSM or algae, perhaps my position is more accurately that "they can have benefit in some people of a certain type, though they don't possess any specific attributes which will enhance the effect of the diets, and are perhaps redundant with it."

Hi everyone

Anyone gets kind of hyper activety after taking Magnesium?
I took one (375mg Super Magnesium, Great Earth) yesterday and got this "speedy" feeling. Like to much brain activety .

Could it be de-tox?

But as I am a Type B non-sec with sometimes anxiety and tension headache I should really be in need of magnesium. Also I found out that we have soft drinking water here which = low magnesium & kalcium.

I cant find anyone in this thread with this experience..

I am on BTD 100% since about 1 month + Yeast/Fungus Protocol + low carb diet to starve the candida.

hi dear-half of mine  
normally the mg should help you to ride off anxiety & tensions
as well, so it works wonderful for me when I feel tensions in my body..but what kind of mg did you take? I would not go for
mg-oxide but citrate or even best is aspartate

Hi Tomatilla!

Its a mix of a lot of things.. (also aspartate).
Should it be only aspartate?

Buzybee, I just did a little search re: mag and dehydration. Here's a page:
http://www.google.com/search?h.....body&btnG=Search

from just a bit of reading, I'm wondering, how is your fluid (mainly water) intake?
also how are your BM habits, if you don't mind telling.
I have to say, taking 800 mg of magnesium a day have dealt very nicely w/ the constipation issues I was having. Got a buddy of mine to try it for his.........working great.

not that bad   as IB said...yep would also go for a look onto your amounts of daily liquidintake...

would you mind to let us know what is the result of your psychogram of the keirsey's test often the intj's might suffer from the mentioned symptoms.....and perhaps might you give a try to the so called *autogenes training* nach Schulze and or musclerelaxation nach Jacobsen  ......visualization might help also and inositol as well, some fine essential oils like lavenderoil (even 2-3 drops with a little of water)yessss
I know the taste is but it might help you to relax
and perhaps you might use this lavenderoil only externally and use some lavendertea with orange blossom as well

I mainly drink water. Sometimes watered down lemonade or juice. Very seldom a soda only when we go to the movies. As far as BM - tend to be constipated more often than anything- that was one of the things I was hoping the mag. would help with. I also notice when I eat whole grain which is high in mag that I have the same symptoms - dehydrated feeling and constipated.

I clicked on the google link but it didn't go to a particular page. Any link better than another.

Thanks for researching this subject.

BB, that's great that your biggest consumption of liquid is water, but how much water a day? that could possibly be the key factor here. I was just talking to my daughter about how mag has helped w/ my constipation. I remarked that since calcium helps muscles to contract and mag helps them to relax, since I was really low on mag, odds are the muscles in the intestines/colon were not relaxing enough for proper BM's. Does that make sense?
also what is your calcium intake like?
the google link I posted was to a whole page of articles you might look at. figured several were better than just one.

Maybe calicum is my problem. I don't eat dairy but I do eat soy yogurt which has cal. & rice milk, green leafy vegs, not sure what else has cal. I don't do well with cal. such as -if I do eat something that has some dairy in it I feel like it bothers my gallbladder or I may end up with a bladder infect. Somehow all this is connected. Haven't figured it all out in my mind.

timely....well, just reading this thread I recall wondering why I didn't have such a parched throat last night, as usual. And I skipped taking my mag. before bed for a couple days. Coincidence? maybe not.

OK, thanks Stefina, then I am not the only one..  
Maybe I am extra sensitive now when trying to get rid of the candida. Not to funny right now.

Ill take a look at the extra type B supplements but I feel like I have a lot allready.. polyfora, ARA6, magnesium + Yeast/fungus protocol herbs...
Maybe Cortiguard or Nitricycle.

l'arginine is a superbene for us  good idea and we must
realize that even here, our nonnieness drives us to adverse reactions... but..but..but...it depends greatly of the stuff and their amounts...if you begin slowly to introduce something
to your organisme...that might be much better than giving the hammer up from 500mg's....I realized this once I tried the oliveleaf.....that made me hyper as
well ...but I never tried only 250 mg's...so....
the orthomolecular amounts arent' always the best solution

Hi Swe71,

I added a calcium supp. to my nightly mag.  I only take 200mg of mag. because the 400mg does the hyper thing or messes up my bm.  

The calcium supp. I have is called Lean Balance. I had bought it before the BTD then checked the ingredients and they look o.k.

Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol) 132 IU 33%
Calcium (as carbonate, hydroxycitrate, and whey mineral complex) 404 mg 40%

Phosphorus (as whey mineral complex) 13.7 mg 1%
Chromium (as polynicotinate) 133 mcg 111%
Potassium (as hydroxycitrate) 218 mg 6%
Garcinia cambogia extract (fruit & rind)
Standardized for 60% (-) hydroxycitric acid
Gymnema sylvestre extract (leaf)
Standardized for 25% gymnemic acids
Grape extract (as Vitis vinifera) (skin)
Standardized for 20% proanthocyanidins 1.7 g **

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   SourceCal
Caffein-free green tea extract (leaf)
Standardized for 95% polyphenols [70% catechins (45% epigallocatechin gallate, 10% epicatechin gallate, 8% epigallocatechin, 4% epicatechin, 3% gallocatechin gallate - 90 mg EGCG)]
Whey mineral complex
American ginseng (as Panax quinquefolius) (root)
Standardized for 3% ginsenosides
Policosanol 276 mg **

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is sometimes labeled a weight loss supp. but it is not.  It doesn't have any of that stuff that's usually in those pills. I have not lost any weight on it.  Some of the stuff in it I'm not sure what it is.  

I'll post a link but I assure you that I didn't pay a high price for it.  I found them at The Dollar Tree after I had a dream that I should go there and find supplements for me.

http://www.evitamins.com/product.asp?pid=5495  

Weird I know, but it happens a lot to me.  When God directs me, He knows that I like a bargain.  

Speaking of bargain, I've got to go pay for the Lucky jeans on Ebay that I just won for $5. Woo hoo

Jayneeo would you keep a tab on this and see if there is a connection with the mag and dehydration. Would be interested to see if anyone else deals with these symptons. Thanks

Good idea , easy to forget when you are in a hurry to get well..

I took the mag last evening before going to bed and I felt better, the day before I took it in the middle of the day, maybe not so good,.. for me atleast. I am not sure about calcium, if I need it or not, I eat yoghurt everyday.. Ill wait and see what the mag does to me. I also received vitamin A today (yeast/fungus protocol). Thanks for the tip about Natural Vitamins Tomatilla.

oh swe71 I just saw that you are a nonnie. didn't realize that before. Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer so only take it at night?  

oh yeah, Epsom Salts for the bath. Seriously great for us and located at my favorite place "the dollar store".  Epsom salts are a form of Mag.  

Dr. D writes about it for Nomads but it makes sense for all Bs or people who need Mag. then it doesn't have to go thru your entire system.

aaannnndddd now I want to get to know your keirseytest results  





btw. Mf. MSM is known here as a natural painkiller, and antiinflammation supp. better for you should be the intake of
fishoils & Curcuma, better results and more than double effects ....
this is called preventive measurements
