Storage
  • Store the medicine in a closed container at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.
  • If the effervescent (fizzy) tablet comes packaged in foil, do not open the foil until you are ready to use each tablet. Ask your pharmacist, doctor, or health caregiver about the best way to dispose of any outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed. Keep all medicine away from children and never share your medicine with anyone.


How To Use
  • APPEARANCE: Tablet, Fizzy Tablet, Liquid Filled Capsule. Your doctor will tell you how much of this medicine to use and how often.
  • Do not use more medicine or use it more often than your doctor tells you to. If you are using this medicine without a prescription, follow the instructions on the medicine label.
  • Ask your pharmacist or health caregiver if you are not sure how much calcium you should take in one day. Most calcium supplements should be taken with food, but some kinds of calcium (such as calcium citrate) can be taken with or without food.
  • Ask your health care provider or read the label on the bottle to see if you need to take your specific kind of calcium with food.
  • Drink a full glass of water (8 ounces) with each dose.
  • If you are using the effervescent (fizzy) tablet, dissolve the tablet in about 6 to 8 ounces of water (3/4 cup to 1 cup).
  • After the tablet is completely dissolved, drink this mixture right away.
  • Do not save any mixture to take later. Carefully follow your doctor's instructions about any special diet. If you need to take more than one dose each a day, take each dose at evenly spaced times, unless your doctor has told you otherwise.

Side Effects
  • Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects: Headache that will not go away, dry mouth, loss of appetite, severe constipation.

Precautions
  • You should not use this medicine if you have had an allergic reaction to calcium or vitamin D (ergocalciferol).

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose or forget to use your medicine, use it as soon as you can.
  • If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then to use the medicine and skip the missed dose.
  • Do not use extra medicine to make up for a missed dose.

Drug Interactions
  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breast feeding, or if you have kidney disease or have ever had kidney stones.
  • Tell your doctor if you have had problems with too much calcium (hypercalcemia) or too little calcium in your blood (hypocalcemia).
  • Some health problems that can cause hypercalcemia are sarcoidosis, or problems with your parathyroid gland. You should not use certain brands of this medicine if you have kidney disease or are on dialysis.
  • Some brands contain ingredients that could be harmful if your kidneys are not working properly.
  • Always ask your health caregiver what specific brands of this medicine will work best for you. Some health problems can affect how much calcium you should take.
  • Tell your doctor if you have stomach or digestion problems, such as on-going diarrhea, not absorbing nutrients properly, or not having enough acid in your stomach. This medicine might contain phenylalanine (aspartame).
  • This is only a concern if you have a disorder called phenylketonuria (a problem with amino acids).
  • If you have this condition, talk to your doctor before using this medicine. If you are using a large amount of calcium or using it for a long time, your doctor might need to check your blood on a regular basis.
  • Be sure to keep all appointments.
