It's a common side effect of any ingestible substance...

Hi Susan,

Itching is a Common Side Effect of any substance that you might put into your body.

Let's put it this way, someone will have a reaction to every single substance in the world.

But it's not always the actual substance that is the problem, many times it is a problem of something that is IN the supplement itself- a filler or a coating or something else.

So, I have three suggestions.

1) First, try simply switching to a different brand.

2) Please read my page on Magnesium Levels to see why a magnesium level that is even very slightly low is of MAJOR concern.

3) Your doctor can't know the correct dosage of magnesium for you- he's just telling you a random dosage. You would do better to get the correct dose for YOUR exact needs by reading my page on Magnesium Dosage to get the right dose and the right kind of magnesium to take.
