  1. Hi all, I'm a new member here and I'm starting this introductory post as a recovery journal. I'm recovering from risperidone (aka risperdal) and tried magnesium to help with anxiety and overall disassociation. I took a 250mg pill yesterday after dinner and went to bed. Woke up with severe back pain. Anybody else have the same effect while starting magnesium? On the plus side, my mood feels a lot better and I've been feeling much more productive so this feels like a body/mind tradeoff.
  2. Hi, I am currently on Citalopram 20mgs daily and my GP has mentioned coming off as I have been 'stable' for some time. I have heard some people recommend magnesium supplements to prevent recurrence of depression but I just wondered which supplements in particular as I find my brain is a bit fogged by this drug. Fluoxetine gave me bad dreams, sertraline did not help my breathlessness which I think is due to anxiety. This is the third time I have been on medication so I foresee myself having a relapse. Thanks,
  3. For anyone who bought Vitacost Chelated Magnesium between Oct 22, 2010, and June 16, 2016, there has been a recall and you are entitled to a refund under a class action lawsuit! Please go to: http://www.vitacostm...6_final-web.pdf To file a claim which must be postmarked before 28 September 2016! I just stumbled onto this today while I was researching fish oils and ConsumerLabs. I probably bought a dozen bottles during that time, as hubby and I both take 2-3 tablets daily! There is only $360,000 available for settlement to be divided among claimants, but this is kind of flying under the radar. Additionally, VitaCost has re-arranged their "Order History" so you cannot call up how much you ordered of any one item, so we have to "trust them" to get it right. The reason for the recall is that the product, Chelated Magnesium , was listed as ALBIONĀ® magnesium glycinate and contained at least 60% magnesium oxide (which, as we know, is like chewing rocks to get your magnesium). SIX YEARS they mislabelled their product and sold the much cheaper oxide as glycinate! (I tried to upload the claim form, but it is "too large" for SA server. The link will take you there.) I no longer recommend VitaCost, nor will I buy from them myself. They really lost my trust big time on this one. Sure, they've fixed it, but what else didn't get caught?
