Hola friends,I just started on my Caltrate Plus (purple/white box) regimen yesterday morning. Question: Does it get worse before it gets better? This morning I started off with my "normal" soft formed stools but a couple minutes later I dumped out some unpleasantly shaped pale yellow-ish ####. It was like frothy or something if thats the right word.Anyhow, my question is, should I expect it to start off like this and then hopefully see results soon? I'll continue on the Caltrate to see how it goes.THanks,Joe

Joe,I know everyone has different initial reactions to the Caltrate. I had a similar experience to yours the first couple of days. It was like my colon was cleaning itself out. It was REALLY nasty. But after two days, I was back to the most normal I had been in a while. You will probably need to experiment with the dosage to see what it right for you. I have settled on the annoying schedule of a whole pill one day and a half-pill the next. I found this works best for me. If you feel you need more than one pill, split them up between morning and night because your body can only absorb so much calcium at one time.Good luck. -------------------Dan

I followed the directions on the back and am taking two tablets for now. ONe in the morning before a small breakfast, and one in the evening before dinner.I have read on here that others have taken up to 3-4 tablets per day (at least one per meal). I'll stick with 2/day for a while to see how it goes and adjust accordingly.Joe

is caltrate plus a prescription drug? or where do you get it? And what is it good for in terms of symptoms? ------------------Rox"Life is just something that happens while you are making plans"
