Sunnysideup: 5 years later ran out of magnesium


Sunnysideup

Recommended Posts

I used this website to successfully taper off of welbutrin about 5 years ago. Been on a magnesium bishlycinate chelate ever since. Ran out in April and didn’t think about it. Hindsite shows me that for about a month my brain was over processing on a problem I was manic to solve. I solved it. It was fantastic. Never felt so ALIVE until the lack of quality sleep became problematic.  It honestly was best described as good mania which I have never experienced. Connected the sleep to the lack of magnesium. Started back up with a new brand and think I may have doubled my old dose. Sleep improved but became apathetic. 3 days ago I halved my dose. Sleep is good. Caring about life came back. I’m hoping with time the life and energy returns as I figure out the best dose.

 

Anyone else come to this realization?  

 

That magnesium is really doing something to our brains???

 

 I honestly didn’t really know what to think but after the last month something is definitely going on.

Hi Sunnysideup and welcome to SA,

 

Well done on tapering off the Wellbutrin.

 

I use magnesium and have run out several times.  Each time this has happened I have noticed an increase in my anxiety and whenever I restart it the anxiety lessens.  Here is SA's topic:  magnesium-natures-calcium-channel-blocker
