I had been taking magnesium taurate for over a year as I had heard it was good for depression, anxiety , and energy. I did find it quite effective, however it seemed to affect my libido , and I suspect possibly have a negative affect on my potassium levels. It also tended to cause insomnia. A few months ago I stopped taking it altogether and Ever since my anxiety has been sky high, energy has been down, depression increased... Ive taken it a few times during the past few months and boom, instant relief.
I've read that taurine has an affect on GABA levels, and from firsthand experience can definitely attest to this. I imagine what I've been dealing with is similar to Benzo withdrawal.
I was wondering if anyone has experience with taurine or magnesium taurate, and what the best course of action would be to help return me to baseline.
Ssri? Gabapentin? Another supplement ? Any ideas?
