| | Hi Phyl and all/ Mag.and Calcium
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to these boards. I also chat on another board and havejust been plain busy, plus the pain of FM along with osteoporosis.
Nothing really new here for me except I have been trying to figure out lately (since I have heard so much both ways) about when to take my magnesium - along with my calcium, at the same time, or afterwards. For some time I had heard they should be taken separately a few hours apart, and I wondered why this was since there are many products that have them both together.
I was taking the powdered Magnesium for awhile but that gave me so much gas. So now am trying Mag. Oxide till I get rid of that and then ordered the Mag. Citrate caplets. I am going to have to crush those babies as they make me choke. Any ideas for taking them when I crush, put in food might be better than trying to drink it.Do you all take the Mag. at the same time as the Calcium (that is what I have been doing lately). There are so many supps. that have them both together.
In case you do not remember, my last dexascan showed no gain or loss bone density. Unfortunatly, I am going to have to wait another 2 years almost to see if there are any gains. I also take strontium, Vits K,and boron. Any other suggestions?
Have any of you been taking the NOW vitamins? I've heard that some are and they have most of the stuff in there instead of having to take many different pills. Have to also check on those prices. I've also been checking on the Strontium prices. The cost ot the Dr.'s Best vs other brands. I did find some very good prices even on the Dr. Best which I am taking now. Has anyone found any differences besides the prices? in the Stontiums being sold? I know the Dr's Best is knon to be pretty good and I have also found it much cheaper than where I am getting it now, both on line.Well, that is enough questions for now.
Hope to hear from Phyl and any of you who are fighting this osteoporosis together.
Huz to you all,
