Here is some very interesting information regarding Magnesium and Sleep from Kirk Hamilton,PA-C.  Thank you for this information, Kirk.

"Magnesium is the nutrient of the month. Interesting hypothesis. Chronic inflammation increase abnormal sleep quality. Magnesium can reduce inflammation. Therefore help sleep quality. 320 mg per day from magnesium citrate. One of my favorite sleep aids is a liquid calcium-magnesium supplement with a 1:1 ratio - 500 mg Cal carbonate, 500 mg Mag oxide. Helps a lot of patients sleep."

Kirk Hamilton, PA-C

Kirk says that the most common complaint from this is loose stools, however for many chronic pain patients, opioids cause constipation, so this isn't always a concern. He uses Liquid Calcium Magnesium, available through Integrative Therapeutics, 1 Tablespoon at bedtime.  This provides 500 mg of elemental magnesium and 500mg of elemental calcium.

*As with anything, please consult your health care practitioner prior to starting any supplement.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Will attempt to fix the link when I have time, but rest assured that the main points of the article which is quite short, are already there.

Hello, my acupuncturist recommended I try adding 400-500 mg of Magnesium awhile ago. Since I was taking so many different medications and vitamins I never started it. Again a few months, she asked how the magnesium was doing. I told her I never started it. She said "just try it". So I did. I have been sleeping so much better. I take 400mg of Magnesium at bedtime along with my Trazadone. And I'm sleeping (most nights) much better. I went on vacation and forgot to bring enough magnesium, and I had a hard time falling asleep those night.

Hey guys,

Sleep has always been a problem for me. I recently moved to Florida from Hershey PA, I found this store in the South Tampa area that has tons of stuff to help you sleep. For those of you that can't get to the area, I've included where to find it at http://massagesupplies.com/product/4915/ let me know how it works for you. Oh did I mention, I am not happy that they moved the Hershey Chocolate factory out of Hershey, PA. It doesn't smell like chocolate anymore, ugh.

Magnesium has a great dual purpose---better sleep and help with constipation!!!
