    Most books and websites say 400mg is the highest dose, higher than this should only be taken on medical advice. So I do think 1000 mg is high. I have to stuff down 6 tablets a day to get this level in me!

    I "drink" 800mg a day of magnesium. Have you looked for it in powder form? You just mix with water and drink away :Retro smile:

    Hi Tulip, yes I experience the jerking. I am not sure what to call it. Everything that I have looked at has already been mentioned. Apnea/Epilepsy...
    I do get a tremendous shift when I am hormonal (just now) which leads to complicated migraine/seizure type symptoms. I do have lamictal that I wont take but I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet because I can't contend with these symptoms any more. I can't define it seems a mix of migraines - numbness, vomiting, dizziness, temples spasming, myoclonus/restless leg syndrome all occuring at once for me - waking up with jerking head and feet jumping around. I think it is neural over activity. Hope this stops for you. It is so horrible to experience. Hugs ~Sleepy

    I did try some powder to drink, but I found the taste so yucky I preferred the tablets! I've tried lots of different brands, but this one seems to work best for me - it is some super-absorbable form. With the other brands I just didn't seem to be getting enough even though it was theoretically the same dose. I'd keep breaking the china, always a sure sign I need more magnesium...! Oh, that and "tripping over the floor", as my sister puts it.
