Magnesium Deficiency Causing Panic Attacks
by Aaron Spence
Having panic attacks after taking dry vitamin d3 2000 & 1000 i.u. last few weeks, have also been taking magnesium taurate & chelated glycinate with much success 4x 125/133 mg daily (no gastro side effects when taken in conj w/vitamin d3)..but now afraid to take vitamin d3 due to anxiety...being type 2 diabetic, should I increase my daily magnesium intake (900 mg vice 420 mg) so I can be confident in taking vitamin d3 again (definetly helps my blood sugar levels)?
Thanks to you, now a firm believer I'm magnesium deficient & my pdoc should have never put me on below ssri/benzo meds after anxiety attack landed me in ER 3 years ago..all tests came back normal, & it was a couple months later I finally realized that stopping prilosec 20 mg daily reduced my anxiety but have been struggling ever since to get off paxil/ativan meds...my pdoc has never mentioned my magnesium levels being low, how should I approach/question her for testing? Thanks Kerri!...love all the info from your website! Regards, Aaron, from the valley of the sun!
paxil 20 mg-3 yrs (down from 30 mgpneumonia twice on prozac)
ativan 1 mg-3 yrs (down from 2 mg after taking magnesium)
glipizide 5 mg 4x-6 yrs
