> Well, I decided since I haven't been able to work out and I did a lot outside on Saturday and Sunday I lifted weights on Monday about 6:00 pm. Had a hard time falling asleep and woke up early. I think maybe I overdid it. It just feels as if my body wants to make up for lost time working out. I did not get dizzy like I usually do and felt good after the workout. I will take a break and try to slow myself down. I wonder if Mg is depleted when a person works out, such as weightlifing?? Anybody have an idea?

Yes, I think it is. I was noticing in my local super-all-purpose-market that they now have TwinLab magnesium located right next to all the Rip Fuel-type supplements the body builders take.

I think there's also something in the book "The Cortisol Connection" about cortisol released during vigorous exercise, which would counteract the stress-reducing action of magnesium. I will look it up in there as I still have it from the library. I found much food for thought in that book once I understood the magnesium/stress/depression connection. The doctor who wrote that book, btw, is a sports medicine guy. Here is his book's website:

He answers questions there, and there are also questions asked previously to reference. (No search engine though.)

It makes sense to me too that sweating alone would deplete magnesium.

In the five weeks I've been feeling cured from depression using magnesium, I have been monitoring my mood probably far more than I ever did before, as I've been scared it could all be snatched away from me as quickly and easily as it had been given. Each time I felt a little "downward" turn, once I was done panicking ;) I read Eby's site again, or figured out from some other information what I'd been doing wrong/differently. When I corrected that, then I felt better again.
