      Hi all,

      I'm pretty shocked but I started the magnesium chelate yesterday at 400 mg and my T is there but quieter today. I took it at night as I read through the forums and people mentioned it was a sleep aid. I did sleep for 4-5 hours so that's a start :)

      When looking at dosing it looks like most people take it twice a day. I have MS and suffer from fatigue so I'm cautious about taking anything during the day that would make me more tired. However, if I need to take 2 doses then I will. I'm wondering for those taking it, does the morning dose make you tired throughout the day?

      Thanks!

      I take magnesium daily as well. 400mg

      It helps brain and headaces and tinnitus.. well so I've heard. I'm sure it helps a little in the long run so why not.
       
    3. I take mag glycinate. The best form. I don't get tired whatsoever and have no side effects like I did for years on the other useless forms.

      I also take 560 mg × 4 a day.

      I'm taking chelated magnesium, however it is magnesium glycinate. It seems from the reading I've done that would be a good choice. Hopefully it will!

      I have been taking magnesium chloride 520mg a day and it makes me very sleepy that is i take it before bed time.
      If i take it during the day yes it makes me sleepy and tired and very relaxed. So I avoid it during the working hours.

      Magnesium chelate is different form of magnesium than oxide. Your body will absorb better the chelate form.

      Currently taking magnesium oxide, b12 Methylcobalamin and multi vit. So far T is getting better. However, the problem is I not sure which is helping so I am still taking all3

      No disrespect but any talk of taking "this" yesterday and being better "today" means nothing when it comes to T
      Just talking from experience :)
      Having said that , it might help in the long run , best of luck :)

    11. I do too. It's bisglycinate. I also want to make clear I do not take mag for T or H. It's for pain.

      RaZah that was kind of unnecessary wasn't it? If I took something and it seemed to make things even a tiny bit better isn't it OK that I believe it is working? That is what dealing with T is all about. Finding ways to live with it. If you don't have anything to add perhaps just let the question stand on it's own? I mean no disrespect to you either but I' just trying to stay positive!

      Possibly ...then again you are saying on a public forum that magnesium might help T which I disagree with .
      I guess we have different opinions about what dealing with T is all about.
      I actually feel that I was adding something to the discussion by saying that a supplements effect on T cannot be measured on a day to day basis. T is way too varied for that and makes anecdotal evidence way less reliable as opposed to something that has shown to be effective over a longer period of time.

      Having said that , you might be right , maybe I should not say anything?
      I am not being rude , its hard to express yourself on a forum like this.

      EDIT: Thinking about this a bit more , It is quite possible that it might work for someone right away so , lets hope that is what is happening in your case . :)

      @mexigrl64 @RaZaH
      There are so many reasons for T and so many supplements, no one can ever test all combinations.
      I myself take NAC, Cat's Claw and some other stuff.
      I started again with Magnesium (1000 mg per day). Will see how far I can go.
      One day T is milder, one day is hell.
      So if it helps for you, continue with it. If not, try something else.
      But do not give up after some days. Try for weeks or even months.

      I take nothing at all and its the same for me , some days are bearable some days are not.

      @uae96 , Ibuprofen is ototoxic as far as I can tell .Some people report getting T fromIbuprofen, albeit from 2 weeks usage or so.

      @RaZaH
      Problem with me is that I have other issues besides T (for example exhaustion, gaining weigth, red face because of high blood pressure?). So I don't know if it is only T making all my problems. Of course I assume some symptoms are because of T, anxiety, depression and high tension.

      Nevertheless since I cannot change T, I try improving the other things by doing more sports, eating healthy, supplements etc. At least after doing sports, I feel a lot better. But when doing sports, T spikes even more, so this is not always fun. :-(

      I completely agree, if you feel something helps, stick with it for a few weeks at least :)

      Not true at all. Some people may have a nutritional deficiency for which a new supplement might help with all sorts of body healing and function. The time it takes water to hydrate is under an hour. Micro nutrients become active in the bloodstream in as short a time as 30minutes. Do you know how long it takes magnesium to become bioactive from experience? Are you formerly magnesium deficient? When tinnitus abates completely it is often suddenly. Abrupt biological morbidity and remission is not that unusual.

      I take 800 mg everyday for a month now , can't tell if it's helping but t is a notch lower than what it was before , maybe some other thing making it like that I'm not sure , but 800 mg sure helps me sleep 10 hours which I've never slept that much before in my life
