A few months ago there were quite a number of posts regarding magnesium. The general consensus was that doses should be increased fairly quickly up to about 1000 mg or even 1500 mg per day, or until a level is reached where the diarrhea issue becomes serious, whichever comes first.

Those on verapamil seemed to be able to tolerate higher doses of magnesium, probably because the verapamil tends to have the opposite effect on the intestinal tract.

Magnesium supplementation seemed to have no effect on my CHs at all, but there were several posters who had great luck with it.
