Magnesium pills

A neighbor suggested that it might be helpful to take magnesium glycinate pills. I don't think she knew anything about restless legs but she gave me a few and I bought a bottle. It wasn't part of my regular routine and during the Xmas holiday I didn't keep up with my magnesium pills. I had a couple ...
