The VA Nurse who visits my father was concerned due to my lupus & fibro issues that my not sleeping is due to magnesium depletion. Considering I have malabsorption she reccomended I try Magnesium Direct that it is a spray on transdermal application. That way I would not have to worry about which oral was more assorbable. I might be able to get off my Flexeril which causes me to have interuppted sleep also.
