Calcium question

I have to take my calcium 2 hours separate from another med I take three times a day. Sometimes my timing is off and I don't get the three doses of 500mg in.  I cannot skip the other med, it is a heart pill.  My question is, does anyone take 750mg two times a day?  I am taking the liquid calcium citrate. Thanks,

judy

Your body will only absorb 500 mg at a time so the 2x day won't work. 

Good luck

Thanks Robyn,  I thought I had read that somewhere, but I couldn't find it in all my papers.  I ordered some calcium citrate chews online.  I think it will be easier, pop a couple in my purse, can take anywhere, at the right time.  I really didn't want the extra calories but it will handy when away from home.

That's what I do with my Bariatric advantage wafers. Keep a container in my purse easy peasy
