Comment:
In taking Calcium and mental health medications at the same time, the medications were not being absorbed properly and immediate strong adverse effects began. When Calcium use was discontinued adverse effects ceased. When the Calcium was taken 2-3 hours after the medications adverse effects immediately ceased.
