RE: Citracal with Vitamin D, Maximum Dose 630 mg, 240 Caplets I had osteoporosis of the spine and other places on my body (synthroid was probably the culprit/trigger). I was "warned" to take those horrible medications for Osteoporosis because of the osteoporosis on my spine. I refused to do so. I fought osteoporosis for 2 1/2 years by taking four each (with the doctors’ permission) of the simple over-the-counter CITRACAL MAX, along with diligently eliminating caffeine and Coca Cola products (San Pellegrino was my substitution because it contains calcium). In addition, I added plenty of yogurt and milk products to my diet. After 2 1/2 years, to everyone's surprise, I no longer have OSTEOPOROSIS of my spine and other parts of my body (according to my DEXA Test). I spaced the Citracal Max tablets as follows, throughout the day: One tablet every 4 hours (for example, 8am, 12pm, 4pm, 8pm). IMPORTANT: If you are taking synthroid (thyroid medication) . . . you must make allowance in your time schedule to take the Citracal Max 4 hours "before" Synthroid and 4 hours "after" Synthroid (in order not to interfere with the strength of the Synthroid medication). So here is an example of my time schedule (I USE MY PHONE ALARM TO HELP REMIND ME OF THE TIMES) : 6:30 AM CITRACAL 10:30 AM "SYNTHROID" MEDICATION 2:30 pm CITRACAL 6:30 PM CITRACAL 10:30PM CITRACAL DRINK A FULL GLASS OF WATER WITH EACH DOSAGE. I drank plenty of water or Pellagrino of "decaf" green iced tea. you MUST discuss this with your physician(s) before attempting. All I know is that it worked for me. NOTE__I could "not" use Citracal with "MAGNESIUM" because I was sensitive to it: losing hair. But Citracal MAXIMUM tablets are fine–no problems.

I have taken Citracal + D for years for my bones..It is very kind to my troubled tummy and I have no bloating or any stomach upset with this medication.

I developed a severe rash after taking two tablets, requiring medical intervention. I have never experienced allergies or allergic reactions to any other medications.
