Laura,You have to be careful with calcium because it does constipate.If you need to take calcium you would be wise to use calcium citrate form with magnesium. This usally is a lower dose of calcium and in combination with magnesium you may be able to take the calcium and help your problem.You would look for calcium citrate maybe in a 333mg of calcium and 167 mg of magnesium. This is a 2 to 1 ratio and this may work for you. You do need to spread out taking it over the day and always start slow to see how it affects you.Linda
Linda (D-Type)If I don't take my calcium. Gall Bladder removed in 1976 and suffered with urgent diarrhea until I started calcium.
