Every body is different, so your lack of success with magnesium is not a surprise. I'm sorry, though, that it's not working in the way you'd like. I think we're all looking for a miracle cure--especially a non-drug cure.
However, the RDA are the absolute bare minimum requirements (I think my therapist told me they were quickly devised during wartime for the military? Do I have this right?)--and they are WELL BELOW what your body actually needs. You will find that even your doctors' recommendations for vitamins and minerals far exceed the dosage on the RDA list.
In order for vitamins and minerals to be effective (make a noticeable improvement), you have to take well beyond the minimum. I believe the recommended daily dose (for therapy) is between 800 and 1200mg.
How much are you taking?
