    The receptors probably desensitize.

    I experience the same. Magnesium L-Threonate is strongly stimulating with a prolonged effect. Last year i'd been taking it for 2 months (3-4 capsules 667mg each a day) and for some moment I even lost my sleep at all))) I cut on MgT for a while a I was able to sle again though that stimulating effect persisted for about 2 weeks. I never got the same from even higher dosages (counted Mg2+-wise) of Mg Glycinate etc.

    I haven't tried it yet, but Perlmutter's Empowering MagThreonate is combined with glycinate and malate. Maybe there's less of a speedy effect that way:

    So far I have not noticed anything from it. I guess I need to take a larger dose...or maybe it just doesn't have that effect on me.

    I've been taking it for a couple of weeks in the hopes that it will help deal with suppressing excitotoxicity from what I suspect to be excessive Glutamate. I seem to be having less excitotoxin issues and I don't really notice any stimulant effect either. I take 3-4 Jarrow MagMind capsules per day.
