... probably caused by recent severe diarreah episodes. Problem is I believe the supplement is giving me diarreah. Is that possible?
Yes, magnesium oxide can cause diarrhea.
Magnesium oxide can cause diarrhea, as can Milk of Magnesia, which is magnesium hydroxide (same thing, with water added.) The key is dosage. And BTW, magnesium oxide is the same stuff sold as magnesium is health-food stores. Not the best, because it's only 8% absorbed. Try Doctor's Best 100% chelated magnesium. More absorption, less diarrhea.
