    Hi All, I am having some bowel issues with my magnesium. My naturopath had put me on:
    multivitamin with 250 mg magnesium
    magnesium at bed 300 mg
    then just added for pain and sleep a magnesium, phosphorus, L-Serine tab 1 at dinner 105 mg and 1 at bedtime 105.

    After she added the dinner and bedtime dose it seems my stools are very loose and I know this may be too much. I read that for FM magnesium came be taken 750 mg day for pain. This is really working for me - but now this little problem. How much is everyone taking??

    How much magnesium you should take daily. I currently take 500mg's and it seems to be helping but maybe I'm taking too much with my vitamin B complex and a multi-vitamin.

    I would love to hear some advice.
