    It's by Dr.Jacob Teitelbaum. Now he starts everyone high, then a few months down the road he decreases the doses. This is his recommendation: 450 mg dose with 1800mg of malic acid. for 8 months then decrease to a third of this dose. He recommends magnesium glycinate as it is absorbed the best. If diarrhea and cramps are not a problem you can take twice this amount.

    My previous doc had me start at around 200mg and keep increasing it until I had diarrhea, then decrease. My stomach didn't handle it well, so I use shots.

    My current doc told me walnuts and peacans are a good source for magnesium.

    And don't apologize for fibro fog. You are amoung good company! Hope this helps. -Karen
