hi dc1 What are you taking the milk of magnesia for that you have to take it at bedtime? Also what are the ingredients so that you can figure out what is causing you not to sleep? I am pretty sure you can then determine if the side effects are worse than the releif you get from taking it. Hope you feel better Fall queen
