My dr suggested to try magnesium threonate for an alternative to anxiety meds and said half a dose won't hurt to try.
I bought magnesium threonate and took one pill before bed. I noticed immediately how tired I felt. I slept HARD...like 12 hours and very deeply. Since I had dealt with anxiety for several weeks this was a welcome surprise. I took it again the next night and noticed the same. So 2 nights at 1 pill. I decided to add a pill in the morning this Monday. Immediately I felt the buzzed, slightly sedated feel with some mild dizziness. I skipped the nighttime dose hoping that would help, but the next day I still felt exhausted and kind of lightheaded. I didn't take any yesterday either and I'm still feeling lightheaded.
I realize there are different forms I could take, but I need to get past this yucky off feeling before I add anything else.
What do I do to flush this from my system? I can't stand this feeling and it's the only thing I added and it was an almost immediate reaction. I just didn't expect it to be lingering.
Any advice on this? I drank Gatorade yesterday to possibly up electrolytes but it didn't help. Anything else that magnesium could have depleted that have me feeling so crappy?
