Get chelated magnesium. That makes it easier for you to digest. Take it with food (I take mine with breakfast). You can also start at a lower does and slowly add more. I take 2 250mg chelated pills in the a.m. and haven't had any D but some people would split that up and take 1 in the a.m. and 1 in the p.m. Some articles on migraines say to take it with adequate calcium and it's often sold as a joint compound but my doc insisted that I not take it with calcium as they compete with each other. I had started with a cal/mag pill and it wasn't working and after she clarified it for me and I switched to plain mag I've noticed a huge improvement.

Gluten free since Nov '11 after non-celiac gluten sensitive diagnosis. Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.
