Drug Interactions: Calcium and/or Vitamin D can interfere with tetracycline antibiotics, anticoagulants and calcium channel blockers. Consult your physician before use if you are taking any thiazide diuretics, as these can cause extremely high (potentially toxic) levels of calcium in the body.
Nutrient Depletions: Calcium can impair the absorption of the mineral iron. Foods high in phosphorus (animal protein and soft drinks) promote urinary loss of calcium. High consumption of caffeine, and excess dietary fat and fibre can inhibit calcium absorption. Calcium and/or Vitamin D may be depleted by corticosteroids, bronchodilators, anti-osteoporotics, cholesterol-reducing medications, anti-gout medications, anti-tuberculosis drugs, histamine (H2) blockers, oral contraceptives, and sulfonamides.
Supportive Interactions: Vitamin D enhances calcium absorption. Garlic supplements along with calcium may help reduce high blood pressure.
Warnings and Precautions: None known when taken as directed.
Toxicity, Adverse Warnings and Side Effects: Do not exceed recommended dosage. Excess calcium can contribute to the development of kidneys stones, and may cause calcium deposits in the body.
