    Instead of taking it orally, try a magnesium infused lotion or oil.  For most people, magnesium has a laxative effect, including feeling bloated, etc. and diarrhea.

    I had the problem when I started taking certain types of magnesium but now I take magnesium glycinate and I don't have any gastrointestinal issues at all

    Like klm mentioned, take the glycinate version and you won't have the same problems. It's also the best version for absorption too.

    Do try magnesium oil spray. Its more effective and no stomach issues.
