I was told not to go over 2000mg. I have pushed the limit and I can tolerate up to 3000mg without any GI problems. I take magnesium citrate, magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. I alternate them.
For your GP, if you are going to try to get doxy, try to get at least 400mg per day for a month. Any less and it can increase the cystic form of Lyme. Most LLMD's don't use amoxicillin without another med (Probenecid) to increase and help sustain blood levels. If given the choice, I would choose doxy over amoxicillin. Especially if you are not adding probenecid. If you can't get or don't want to take Flagyl, look into grapefruit seed extract to use as a cyst buster until you get to a LLMD.
