Does anybody knows if it gives cravings ? I seem to remember that I gained weight last time I took magnesium

What a brilliant idea. Sleeping on fast days sucks!
I don't find it harder to sleep on fast days, which is good news as I already sleep so few hours on a "regular" day. I usually can't fall asleep before 2:00AM and wake up around 6:00AM, without any alarm, I might add and, if I fell asleep early I will automatically wake up after 4 to 5 hours of sleep.

You could give me 5 times the recommended dosage of spleeping pills that I wouldn't sleep. My average is 4 hours a night..... The magnesium I take is made of magnesium citrate but it seems that it doesn't do the trick with the insomnia. It's not all bad though, even if I still sleep the same, I feel less tired during the day and I am fine with that
Magnesium citrate is really good but even better for sleep problems is magnesium glycinate as the glycine part also helps sleep. Another thing is to look at how much actual magnesium you are taking. Both the citrate and the glycinate forms are big molecules so when the bottle says e.g. magnesium citrate 500mg, you are only getting around 80g of actual magnesium. You need to supplement with about 350mg of magnesium to get the sleep benefits...that can be a lot of tablets, so it is worth shopping around to find a good supplement.
