NO, it is okay!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for contacting us here at healthcare magic.

Taking 400mg of magnesium i snot harmful. Recommended daily intake for women is about 320mg and thus yours is very much within the recommended dose.

I hope this addresses your worry fully. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
