hello, W --

in response to another post about magnesium for depression, i wrote --

webMD info on magnesium is at . other websites state that magnesium is not widely used or recommended for depression.

unfortunately, i did not keep a list of the other websites i checked for magnesium and depression. i am not a medical person, so at this point i think maybe you should check on this for yourself (search/"google" for {magnesium depression} and see what you get).

you need to know that i have a considerable amt of skepticism about the reliability of info on what i do not consider to be mainstream medical websites, esp forum-type websites and those related to the commercial sale of products; i am sure this influenced my response to the earlier post.

please keep us posted on what you find out.
