When to take Magnesium-Chelate
by Jeanette Haraszti
(Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Canada)
My doctor prescribed the above supplement, the only thing he told me - do not take close to your thyroid medication. I was taking one capsule (125mg) at bedtime. I am to increase every three days, 1 capsule, until I reach bowel tolerance??
I purchased these capsules at a health food store, and the person who has knowledge of vitamins, said some people can take up to (8) a day. My problem is, I do not know when/at what time of day I should take the Magnesium-Chelate as to not interfere with my other meds/vitamins.
I take a synthroid in the morning, with 2 (1000units) Vitamin D, CoQ10 (60 mg) Selenium (50mcg) Vitamin B12(250mcg) and Vitamin C, 500MG)/
Lunch: 1ocated Aspirin (81Mg-must take as I had a mild stroke). Glusosamine Sulfate (500 MG).
Dinner: Caltrate Calcium +D, 2 Viamin D (1000 units each)
Bedtime: 1 Magnesium Chelate (125mg)
1 Amitrptyline (10mg) for Fibromalgia and 2 (1mg) Lorazepam (for sleep-have severe insommia).
My questions: What time of day should I increase the Magnesium as not to interfere with any other pills.
