I think I would call my doctor for advice if you've not already, and make sure that a Magnesium suppliment is indicated for you. I am thinking that you could get what you need nutritionally and with what is in a multi...unless your doctor had told you otherwise...
...if you do think you want to continue taking your Magnesium, then trying it again to see if indeed this was a reaction, or a random panic attack (more likely as Magnesium if known to have a calming effect on the nervous system) would be your best move.
Trying not to anticipate any effects, and just seeing how it goes should give you the answers you need.
Wishing you the best...let us know how it goes!
Unfortunately it's very hard to get the proper amount of Magnesium and it's very hard to tell if you have enough stored in your bones because you will always show 1% or normal in your cells when they check via a blood test and that is what most doctors always do. Unfortunately most doctors do not understand as much about
nutrition as they should and don't realize the grave importance of minerals like Magnesium. It's more important than calcium and many other minerals that most people seem talk about
. As for multi vitamins, they seem to only offer around 15% of daily recommendation. Roughly 80% of people are Magnesium deficient due to the deteriorating top soil in this country. 50 years ago our fresh fruit and veggies had so many more vitamins and minerals, but because of today's agriculture and process's when handling our foods adding shelf life and ect. Our foods have nowhere near the amount of nutrients they used to so it's almost impossible to tell how much vitamins and minerals you are really getting these days via foods you know should have them. Even with eating foods that are organic and supposed to be high in certain minerals, unless the soil where they were grown had those minerals in abundance, the crop will not produce the minerals when grown.
I'm going to take a lower dose tonight and keep you posted as to what happens :D
