    I take one tablet everyday to help ward off migraine headaches, along with 400 mg of riboflavin (B2). I have taken this for about 5 years, and it has been effective at decreasing the frequency of my headaches. It is the only brand that I know of that comes in 400 mg tablets, the recommended does for preventing migraines. Yes, I still get headaches with these, but it has broken the cycle of almost daily headaches I used to have. My only complaint is that the cap breaks easily when I drop the bottle- this has happened more than once- and I am stuck with a capless bottle until I use all the tablets and open a new one.

    I take magnesium supplements in order to help prevent migraines. I tried this supplement for a few weeks and had to stop due to digestion side effects -- bloating, stomach rumbling, and so on. These side effects began right away, but I thought that they might improve as I adjusted to the dose. Unfortunately, it just kept getting worse. I've since read that, for some people, magnesium oxide isn't processed properly (and isn't a particularly bio-available form of magnesium). Other forms of magnesium (e.g. magnesium citrate or magnesium lactate) don't cause any digestive side effects for me and seem to be more effective in preventing migraines.

      This product was recommended in Prevention Magazine many years ago. I have been using it daily and cannot do without it. I am never constipated any more. It works great.

        Comments about Twinlab Magnesium Caps, 400mg, 200 capsules:

        I read in a health book that taking magnesium caps help with constipation caused by medication. And for me one 400 mg cap a day works for me. These are not a laxative, or stimulant, just a natural ingrediant to help with digestion and food transit in colon.

            I use Magnesium to help maintain nerve and muscle function. Magnesium also aids in enzyme processes.
            Good magnesium levels aid in good health including healthy blood sugar levels, healthy levels in blood pressure, healthy heart and value functions.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery was prompt. I received the product within 5 days of ordering. It arrived in good condition ans was well packaged with protective bubble wrap, that was intact.

              Really helps with medically induced constipation due to several daily meds. Check with your medical professional related to compatability with your prescription medications.

                Some medications cause constipation. Take 1,2, or 3 Twin Lab magnesium oxide caps at night and no more constipation.

                  I love Twinlab products and feel they're a reputable company. I should have done more research before starting this dose of Magnesium. The little research I did indicated an optimum dose of Magnesium was up to 1000 mg/day. What I didn't know was that Magnesium can have a laxative effect and the dose I was taking (400 mg twice daily) was way too much for me. For me, too much Magnesium meant severe diarrhea, which made me very weak, tired, etc.

                  It took a couple weeks for me to figure out that a maximum of 400 mg with breakfast is the most I can handle. Occasionally I skip days if I can't have a meal before 8:00 a.m.

                    I take magnesium supplements in order to help prevent migraines. I tried this supplement for a few weeks and had to stop due to digestion side effects -- bloating, stomach rumbling, and so on. These side effects began right away, but I thought that they might improve as I adjusted to the dose. Unfortunately, it just kept getting worse.
