For those of you that were reading some previous posts about this, i found some info on the internet about why taking calcium WITH magnesium in one pill is not good. i just googled "how to take magnesium to help headaches" or something like that and i clicked on the second link it gave me. (for those who might want to read more) ..Guess i will need to go out and buy a different supplement.
A note about calcium: Magnesium and calcium
balance each other out in the body. If you have too much of one and not enough of another, it can cause problems. That's one reason why it's important not to take too much of one or the other.
However, when taking magnesium for migraine don't buy a calcium/magnesium blend. If you're taking a calcium supplement, take it at another time of day. It can interfere with the benefits of the magnesium for migraine.
Source Naturals has an excellent supplement which contains 400mg of magnesium, which many doctors suggest as a good amount for migraineurs to take. It's called Ultra-Mag Magnesium complex.
