HI everyone. I've been lurking steadily for a while, and popped in here and there throughout this pregnancy.
I'm wondering if anyone knows what a max safe dosage of calcium/magnesium would be daily?
Restless leg syndrome is driving me crazy at night, I totally can't sleep, can barely even lay there. I keep taking the cal/mag supplements, but I'm up to 16,000 mg of cal/ 6400mg of mag (that's 16 pills!) and they do kick it quickly so I can go to sleep, but I will wake up with a mild case of it before morning.
I know I used to take huge dosages like this in high school for cramps, and never seemed to suffer any problems from it, but just wondered if anyone had any dosage suggestions or cautions.
due April 14th, hoping to make it to 36 weeks after 2 pre-term, and 1 preemie baby!
