Magnesium + Taurine questions...

Posted by tecknohed on October 30, 2007, at 12:06:45

I just been to Holland & Barrett (UK) to pick up some vits & noticed they had a half price sale on so I thought "what the hell" & bought some Taurine & Magnesium. I have some questions...

I had a choice of Amino Acid Chelate or Citrate form. Lady in shop said Chelated form is most absorbable, so I got that one. Was she right? I always thought citrate minerals were better.
Should I take it with or without food? How much should I take to notice a difference (if any)? How long should it take to work?
Your experiences with Magnesium please!

I have standard L-Taurine 500mg tabs. I'm hoping for some anxiolytic effect (& maybe lower my benzo dose as a result) & maybe a mood stabilizing effect too. Is this realistic? Also, same questions as Magnesium: How much should I take? With or without food? How long will it take? Your experiences please, etc...

Just so you know, I also take 3mg/day clonazepam (Klonopin - a benzo) & 40mg/day isocarboxazid (Marplan - an MAOI antidepressant). I have Social Phobia (as part of Avoidant Personality Disorder) with associated depression. I also have some OCD symptoms & Hypersomnia.
My anxiety is pretty well controlled with the clonazepam. I've only been on Marplan for 9 days but it is already starting to help my mood, though I'm still waiting to feel motivated (if that will ever happen!). My mood is also fluctuating slightly (it normally does this) though I do not consider myself Bipolar.

Thankyou in advance!
