      I have been taken webber naturals' Magnesium Citrate 150mg for many years, sometimes it give me racing heart and heart palpitations in the middle of the night. Nowadays I only take it maybe once a week.

      I tried webber naturals' Magnesium Biglycinate 200mg, it actually gives me insomnia :(

      Right now I am taking CanPrev Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 200mg, it does make me calm and sleep a little better.

      Just ordered a "MagEnhance Magnesium-L-Threonate Complex, With Magnesium Glycinate and Taurate" from Amazon, will update once I give it a try.

      I am so confused about all these different Magnesium supplements. Is this a good supplement to take?

      Life Extension: Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate

      Is it too high in magnesium? Would like to stay on a lower dose but for a long time to see if anything changes.

      YES! Magnesium L-Threonate is the best in the sense that it is the ONLY Magnesium supplement that crosses the blood-brain barrier. Magnesium Bisglycinate is another favorite of mine. You could try combining those two... take Bisglycinate in the morning, L-Threonate in the evening.

      You should take 3 pills of Life Extension Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate in the evening. That provides 144 mg of elemental Magnesium, and then you can take Bisglycinate in the morning in the amount that makes your total daily elemental Magnesium 300-400 mg.

      Good Magnesium Bisglycinate product:

      I read the topic.

      It is well understood that there are several Magnesium salts, three of which tend to work well, such as Magnesium bisglycinate, glycerophosphate...

      Can taking Magnesium (regular dose) make tinnitus or hyperacusis worse?

      I am asking this question because I am more and more vigilant about taking medications or supplements.

      Thank you for your feedback.

      Has anyone whose tinnitus gets severely spiked by Magnesium Citrate found a form of Magnesium that doesn't spike their tinnitus? Which one has worked best while still being effective for calming nerves, relaxing muscle spasms etc.?

      I need to take Magnesium for other issues but it spikes my tinnitus like crazy every single time.

      @shrimp, Magnesium Bisglycinate. Recommended by my audiologist as the only supplement worth taking.

      @shrimp, try Magnesium Glycinate and/or Liquid Ionic Magnesium.

      Thanks for the tip, I bought some yesterday. I will try it out and hope my spike quiets down.
      Thanks. I've started taking Glycinate now, let's see how it works for me!

      Just wanted to check in and thank @MindOverMatter and @Nick47 for the tip on trying Magnesium Glycinate instead. I switched from Citrate a few weeks back and my tinnitus has gone way down, so this appears to be working! My tinnitus is still slightly higher than baseline when on no Magnesium at all, but compared to when on the Citrate, it's about 80% less of a spike so this I can live with for the benefits I get from being on it in the first place.

      That's great news @shrimp.

      What dosage are you on? 200-400 mg a day?

      Tip: If you notice loose stools, try out with a little less, or portion it out throughout the day.

      Hearing damage, ear infections
      Questions:
      • Is the standard oral Magnesium supplementation dosage sufficient to significantly increase Magnesium-mediated modulation of Calcium ions/Calcium channels?

      • Which Magnesium salt is best to modulate Calcium ions/Calcium channels in which part of the body?

      Something to keep in mind w/ Magnesium supplements:

      For younger people w/ no known health issues, Magnesium supplements are perfectly safe. For older people, or people who may have kidney issues (not kidney disease, but possible weakened kidney function) it might be wise to discuss supplementation w/ a health professional and/or get labs done since excess minerals such as Magnesium are filtered from our bodies through the kidneys. Anything over 350-420 mg is usually not recommended, and this doesn't account for what we may already be getting in our foods.

      I wasn't aware of this until just now, and had been taking three 250 mg pills a day regularly. That will be cut back down to 1 pill a day, and I'll take a look at my food intake and see if even that much is necessary.

      I've been taking Magnesium Bisglycinate for the past few days and slept very well last night. I'm also more physically active.

      My audiologist loosely recommended Magnesium, with no real conviction.

      Like with all things tinnitus, a single supplement or medication rarely works. Those who take up treatment and do best tend to use a combination or a stack.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise - clubs, stereos, cycles, headphones, engines,etc
      I took Magnesium Bisglycinate until I ran out and then Magnesium Glycinate for a few months. They didn't help my sleep or tinnitus. I haven't had any success with quite a few supplements I've tried.
