  • INDICATIONS

    Calcium is a mineral that is found naturally in foods. Calcium is necessary for many normal functions of the body, especially bone formation and maintenance. Calcium can also bind to other minerals (such as phosphate) and aid in their removal from the body.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
    Calcium carbonate works best if you take it with food. Swallow the calcium carbonate tablet or capsule with a full glass of water.

    The chewable tablet should be chewed before you swallow it.

    Use the calcium carbonate powder as directed. Allow the powder to dissolve completely, then consume the mixture.
    Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. Measure the liquid with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one. Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

    If you missed a dose - take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

    DOSAGE

    Usual Adult Dose for Osteoporosis:

    2500 to 7500 mg/day orally in 2 to 4 divided doses.

    Usual Adult Dose for Hypocalcemia:

    900 to 2500 mg/day orally in 2 to 4 divided doses. This dose may be adjusted as needed to achieve a normal serum calcium level.

    Usual Adult Dose for Dyspepsia:

    300 to 8000 mg/day orally in 2 to 4 divided doses. This dose may be increased as needed and tolerated to decrease symptoms of stomach upset.
    Maximum Dose: 5,500 to 7980 mg (depending on product used). Not to exceed maximum daily dosage for a period of greater than 2 weeks unless directed by a physician.

    Usual Adult Dose for Duodenal Ulcer:

    1250 to 3750 mg/day in 2 to 4 divided doses. This dose may be increased as needed and tolerated to decrease the abdominal discomfort. The major limiting factor to the chronic use of calcium carbonate is gastric hypersecretion and acid rebound.

    Usual Adult Dose for Gastric Ulcer:

    1250 to 3750 mg/day in 2 to 4 divided doses. This dose may be increased as needed and tolerated to decrease the abdominal discomfort. The major limiting factor to the chronic use of calcium carbonate is gastric hypersecretion and acid rebound.

    Usual Adult Dose for Erosive Esophagitis:

    1250 to 3750 mg/day orally in 2 to 4 divided doses. The potential for acid rebound could be detrimental. However, antacids have been frequently used in the management of erosive esophagitis and may be beneficial in decreasing the acidity of gastric contents.
    Maximum Dose: 5,500 to 7980 mg (depending on product used). Not to exceed maximum daily dosage for a period of greater than 2 weeks unless directed by a physician.

    Usual Adult Dose for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease:

    1250 to 3750 mg/day orally in 2 to 4 divided doses. The potential for acid rebound could be detrimental. However, antacids have been frequently used in the management of erosive esophagitis and may be beneficial in decreasing the acidity of gastric contents.
    Maximum Dose: 5,500 to 7980 mg (depending on product used). Not to exceed maximum daily dosage for a period of greater than 2 weeks unless directed by a physician.

    Usual Pediatric Dose for Hypocalcemia:

    Neonatal:
    Hypocalcemia (dose depends on clinical condition and serum calcium level): Dose expressed in mg of elemental calcium: 50 to 150 mg/kg/day in 4 to 6 divided doses; not to exceed 1 g/day

    Usual Dosage:
    Antacid:
    Children 2 to 5 years: Childrens Pepto, Mylanta (R) Childrens: 1 tablet (400 mg calcium carbonate) as symptoms occur; not to exceed 3 tablets/day
    Children 6 to 11 years: Childrens Pepto, Mylanta (R) Childrens: 2 tablets (800 mg calcium carbonate) as symptoms occur; not to exceed 6 tablets/day
    Children 11 years and older:
    Tums (R), Tums (R) E-X: 2 to 4 tablets chewed as symptoms occur; not to exceed 15 tablets [Tums (R)] or 10 tablets [Tums (R) E-X] per day
    Tums (R) Ultra: 2 to 3 tablets chewed as symptoms occur; not to exceed 7 tablets per day
    Hypocalcemia (dose depends on clinical condition and serum calcium level): Dose expressed in mg of elemental calcium:
    Children: 45 to 65 mg/kg/day in 4 divided doses

    STORAGE
