magnesium free multivitamin?

I can't tolerate oral magnesium for some reason. The oil works great though
I think I would benefit from a good multivitamin, but they all seem to have magnesium (for good cause). Anyone know of one that doesn't?

This doesn't really answer your question exactly but we prefer taking individual food based vitamins, like MegaFoods B complex, high vitamin cod liver oil, acerola vitamin C, SeleNext selenium according to our needs based on dietary content and symptoms of deficiencies.

I really think that chemical forms of vitamins are not well utilized by the body and many are just plain toxic (vitamin A palmitate for example).
I don't know of any multivits w/o magnesium. You may be stuck with separates--a good B-complex, well, various separates.

Have you tried supping calcium for a while first, before the magnesium? Apparently it helps some people, they're low in both. It'll be a pain to buy individual minerals, I'd be shocked if there's a mineral supp w/o magnesium out there.
I'll try the calcium for a while first to see if that helps, thanks!
