Caltrate is the most widely prescribed calcium on the market yet the side effects of gas and bloating is unbearable.. I thought that the side effects would eventually go away, yet after 4 months of taking this calcium it has not subsided at all...

I don't know if I am satified, I am experiencing loose stool since I started taking it. For about 2 weeks now. Is this common?

I have extreme gas problems with calcium. I tried this brand and was happy with the results. Then they changed it to the little tablets and the gas problem came roaring back. What to do!?!?!?!
