Cautions

  • Aluminum-containing antacids are known to ultimately lead to an increase in bone breakdown and calcium excretion.
  • The bone building drug etidronate (Didronel®) and tetracycline antibiotics should not be taken within 2 hours of calcium supplements as the calcium may decrease their effectiveness.
  • Calcium supplementation may also reduce the effectiveness of the following drugs: digoxin, gallium nitrate (Ganite®), phenytoin (Dilantin®).
  • If you are taking any of these drugs, consult your health care practitioner before taking a calcium supplement.
