I'm taking 8 capsules of magneium glycinate chelate (150 mg magnesium each) and 8 oz of magnesium water (4 Tbl x 500 mg mag/5= 400 mg mag) per day.  If my calculations are correct, that translates to 1600 mg magnesium per day. 

Despite this regimen, my RBC magnesium levels are going down and are at about the same level as they were BEFORE I started taking magnesium.

NOTE: My lab actually reports my results in mmol/L, with a reference range of 1.5-3.1, and I've converted to mg/dL using a factor of 2.43, is this correct?

As reported (Reference range 1.5 - 3.1)
8/30/2013  1.8
9/30/2011  2.2
2/03/2011  1.9

As converted (Reference range converts to 3.65- 7.54, is that correct?)
8/30/2013  4.6  
9/30/2011  5.35
2/03/2011  4.38

What am I doing wrong?  I have noticed a bit more loose bowels recently.  Am I losing more than I'm adding because of this, so maybe less is more?  Would welcome any assistance, thoughts, your experience, etc.

Thanks for the suggestion, Heart Builder.  I've also got leg cramps, even though I'm taking potassium, so something is going on with my mag/potassium/sodium balance.

My magnesium is high - I wonder if it's because I take ZMA which is magnesium with B6 and Zinc combined.

Okay, but leery of efficacy and/or side effects of possible "solutions".
