hi all, I've been on citalopram for nearly 12 weeks and getting bad restless legs at night. I read that magnesium is good for RLS so have taken some for the last two nights and bingo no more RLS!! But ... Now wondering if it's ok to mix the two, prob should've looked into it first really!  Anyone heard of it being a bad idea? xxx

    I think it will be okay to take them together...magnesium is also good for the nervous system so might even help speed up recovery 😊 x x x

    Hi Marf

    My doctor recommended taking magnesium and vitamin b. Take them once a day.

    Hope you are doing well.

    Marf ive been getting what i think is rls too. Sometimes I have like a crawling throbbing feeling, other times my legs will twitch or jerk. Its such a horrible feeling not being able to keep your legs still! Do you get it during the day too?

    I have some magnesium in the cupboard I may have to try it too

      Yes, exactly that feeling, I was only calling it RLS as I didn't know what else to call it! I was getting it a bit in the day but mostly badly at night. I've had two nights free of it now which is great xx it might be a coincidence but I'm going to try it for a week and see what happens xxx maybe try it too, we can be guinea pigs together ha ha xx
