Should I Take Additional Magnesium & Vitamin D?
(Vallejo, California, USA)
I stumbled into you great website. It caught my attention because I am "recovering" or "healing" from Fibromyalgia. About 3 months ago, I started taking Calcium Magnesium Citrate Plus D3. I noticed that since taking this supplement, my headaches is 99% better and I understand that this is due to the intake of Magnesium.
I am only taking 2 tablets, though, because in addition to this supplement, I have been taking Centrum Silver which has 50 mg of Magnesium. Altogether, my total Magnesium intake is 300 mg. I still have occasional insomnia, occasional anxiety, fatigue, tinnitus and imbalance. My aches and pains are almost gone. What is the right dosage of Magnesium that I should take? I am 62 years old, 140 lbs and physically fit.
I only eat natural foods. I have normal blood pressure; however, I am taking Anagrelide to suppress my platelets count which is now in the normal range. Should I also take additional Vitamin D? Altogether, I am already taking a total 900 IU of Vitamin D.
Thank you for your response.
