    I have magnesium glycinate 400mg 2 in the morning and 2 at night. I was suffering with insomnia and horrible dizziness when laying down. This makes me feel relaxed and I sleep like a baby. I forgot to take it the other night and was up all night! It works for me. Please try it.

    Are you saying that you take a total of 400 mgs (2 pills=400 mgs), and you take 400 mgs in the morning and then again in the evening before bed? Or that you take a total of 400 mgs all day (1 pill times 4 = 400 mgs). I just want to be clear. I current take 225 mgs in the evening and I haven’t noticed anything, but perhaps if I up the dosage, it will help.

    I take a total of 400mg. So 200mg in the morning and 200mg an hr before bed.
    Mine come in a bottle of 100mg so I take 4 a day.
    I was speaking to someone from another site who told me she has permanent vertigo and she takes this with vitamin d and calcium.
    Sorry for late reply I didn't see this message

    I take 500mg of magnesium oxide daily. I've tried it to see if it would help vertigo. Definitely helps my endometriosis. Not quite sure of vertigo yet, but I have no side effects so maybe it's worth continuing.

    I take Magnesium glycinate chelate less dosage than you. I thought it helps to absorb calcium since I have osteoporosis. I did not know it helps to sleep. I take Melatonin every night to follow sleep. But if I wake up in the middle of the night and start worry about become dizzy, I can't follow back to sleep and spend hours

    Magnesium glycinate has been a godsend for me. My doctor prescribed Magnesium Oixide 1st, but it did nothing for me. I take 1000 MG of magnesium glycinate every night. That dosage has not prevented attacks for me, but has reduced my attack duration drastically. It cut my 2-4hr drop attacks to 10-15mins (all attacks were drop attacks). Then I added 16mgs of betahistine 2xday. Now my attacks are only a couple mins and with vestibular rehab I can now remain standing and can see straight during an attack, but can feel the spinning in my head. Since joining this group a week ago, I've started a treatment of Acycolvir, begun JoH treament and added the recommended amount of B6 I should take according to Benny. I'm currently in the 3wk 3xs a day of Acycolvir and if I take JoH recommended amount of L-Lysine I'm very dizzy. I might wait to up the dosage of L-Lysine once I'm tapering down on the Acycolvir. I'm extremely grateful for the relief the magnesium glycinate and betahistine has provided but really want that pot at the end of the rainbow.....of symptom free living or as closing to it as possible.

    I take Chelated Magnesium glycinate from Solgar for several years. It helps to absorb Calcium from food. So I don't need to take any Ca pills. What effect from Mg you have? And what brand do you use? For me, in order to get 400 mg, I need to swallow 4 pills. It's not that easy to find a good Mg glycinate. Thanks, eveva

    I haven't noticed any issue from taking the Mg. I did notice that if I'm having a couple cocktails, I would need to take an extra Mg in the morning. My doctor told me the magnesium is quickly depleted with alcohol. This is the one I take. I really don't think there is much difference between glycinate and gluconate.

    For two weeks I have been taking pills that have 500mg of magnesium (of various types), calcium (500gm) and potassium (I don't remember the amount, but little). I take two pills a day, one after walking for an hour or running for 20-30 minutes and another before sleeping along with melatonin. Since then I feel more energetic, but also more relaxed and sleep more deeply at night.
