I have taken it for 6 months and it did not increase nor decrease. But I got a persistent cough. When I interrupted for few days, cough disapeared. Once I re-started taking the medication I got cough again.

I am 64 years old, and am trying to avoid loss of bone. My Doctor suggested I take calcium plus D. OS-CAL ultra has always worked very well. For a few months I could not find OS-CAL anywhere on pharmacy shelves. When I started taking the 600 plus D I was elated. Now 2 weeks later I am having a reaction to the coating on the tablets. I have been allergic to Reds and Yellow dyes for ages (20 years), the tablets appear gray in color, but upon reading the back label I discovered red 40 lake along with blue 2 lake. My someone please contace GlazoSmithKline and ask IF they even make a all white tablet or send me the info. and I will call them. Yours, Jackie Ann Bowen 606-215-7276
