Advice & Tips: Great success with magnesiumhydroxide but wanted to add potassium as well as I do not get enough with just food. Was hesitant to get these because of the aspartate as I get headaches from it, but wanted to try anyway because good value and the doses I wanted. Only took four days, will not take again. Awful head aches on waking up in the back of the head (never had it that way before).
