Yessee - sorry to be so discouraging but if you read my thread I just posted, I'm not doing too well right now. I WAS taking 3 of the Caltrate a day - did real great for about a month now. I hope it works for you.I'm hoping my bad time is only due to my period, which is almost, but not quite, over. (I was taking 4 during my period) Or, maybe because I drank out of town water, which usually does me in. But I'm having a bad day and feel kind of hopeless again.Boy, hows this for spoiling your hopes... maybe I shouldn't post this response. But, I guess I will post this anyway, just so you know what is happening, and you then can read the replies to my thread - then we both can learn more about the Caltrate...I really pray the Caltrate works for you. Good luck.
