Pharmacokinetics of ethambutol under fasting conditions, with food, and with antacids. (1/380)

Ethambutol (EMB) is the most frequent "fourth drug" used for the empiric treatment of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and a frequently used drug for infections caused by Mycobacterium avium complex. The pharmacokinetics of EMB in serum were studied with 14 healthy males and females in a randomized, four-period crossover study. Subjects ingested single doses of EMB of 25 mg/kg of body weight under fasting conditions twice, with a high-fat meal, and with aluminum-magnesium antacid. Serum was collected for 48 h and assayed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Data were analyzed by noncompartmental methods and by a two-compartment pharmacokinetic model with zero-order absorption and first-order elimination. Both fasting conditions produced similar results: a mean (+/- standard deviation) EMB maximum concentration of drug in serum (Cmax) of 4.5 +/- 1.0 micrograms/ml, time to maximum concentration of drug in serum (Tmax) of 2.5 +/- 0.9 h, and area under the concentration-time curve from 0 h to infinity (AUC0-infinity) of 28.9 +/- 4.7 micrograms.h/ml. In the presence of antacids, subjects had a mean Cmax of 3.3 +/- 0.5 micrograms/ml, Tmax of 2.9 +/- 1.2 h, and AUC0-infinity of 27.5 +/- 5.9 micrograms.h/ml. In the presence of the Food and Drug Administration high-fat meal, subjects had a mean Cmax of 3.8 +/- 0.8 micrograms/ml, Tmax of 3.2 +/- 1.3 h, and AUC0-infinity of 29.6 +/- 4.7 micrograms.h/ml. These reductions in Cmax, delays in Tmax, and modest reductions in AUC0-infinity can be avoided by giving EMB on an empty stomach whenever possible.  (+info)

Prescription of acid-suppressing drugs in relation to endoscopic diagnosis: a record-linkage study. (2/380)

BACKGROUND: Although widely used, few data are available on the appropriateness of prescribing of acid-suppressing drugs (ASDs), despite guidelines on the investigation and treatment of dyspeptic patients. METHODS: We created a database of 62 000 endoscopy examinations and record-linked these to a prescribing database. Endoscopic diagnoses were classified into peptic, nonpeptic and others. The H2-antagonists, omeprazole and misoprostol, were studied. RESULTS: 35 000 patients had one or more endoscopies during 1978-93; two-thirds were over 45 years of age at first endoscopy. A quarter of all patients who had been endoscoped had consistently normal examinations. Peptic oesophageal pathology was the commonest positive finding. A quarter of those prescribed ASDs between 1989 and 1993 had been endoscoped between 1978 and 1993. In those with a peptic diagnosis prescribed any ASD, the pathologies found were: oesophageal (42.9%), duodenal (36.3%) and gastro-pyloric (21.3%). Patients prescribed omeprazole were more likely to have undergone endoscopy than those prescribed other ASDs, and they were also more likely to have peptic oesophageal pathology. Long-term prescribing (>56 days per year) occurred in two-thirds of patients prescribed ASDs and 40% had at least one endoscopy. In those prescribed short-term ASDs, 20% had undergone at least one endoscopy. Peptic and nonpeptic endoscopic pathology was associated with increased ASD prescribing, but a normal endoscopy did not reduce prescribing. CONCLUSION: ASD prescribing appeared to be mainly symptom-driven. Positive endoscopic findings increased the prescribing of ASDs, but normal findings did not reduce it.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics of gatifloxacin and interaction with an antacid containing aluminum and magnesium. (3/380)

The pharmacokinetics of gatifloxacin (400 mg orally) and the influence of the antacid aluminum magnesium hydroxide (20 ml of Maalox 70) on the bioavailability of gatifloxacin in 24 healthy volunteers were assessed. In an open, randomized, six-period crossover study, the volunteers received either gatifloxacin alone (treatments A and D); aluminum magnesium hydroxide concomitant with gatifloxacin (treatment C); or aluminum magnesium hydroxide 2 h before (treatment B), 2 h after (treatment E), or 4 h after gatifloxacin administration (treatment F). Gatifloxacin concentrations were measured by a validated bioassay and high-performance liquid chromatography. Pharmacokinetics of a single 400-mg dose of gatifloxacin alone were characterized as follows (mean +/- standard deviation): peak concentration (Cmax), 3.8 +/- 0. 5 (treatment A) and 3.4 +/- 0.9 (treatment D) microgram/ml; time to Cmax, 1.4 +/- 0.8 (treatment A) and 1.7 +/- 0.7 (treatment D) h; area under the curve from time zero to infinity (AUC0-infinity), 33. 5 +/- 5.9 (treatment A) and 31.4 +/- 3.4 (treatment D) microgram. h/ml; urine recovery, (83 +/- 6)% (treatment A) and (84 +/- 8)% (treatment D). Comparison of the results obtained by bioassay showed a good correlation. Aluminum magnesium hydroxide administration 2 h before (treatment B) or concomitant with (treatment C) gatifloxacin decreased the Cmax by 45% (2.1 +/- 1.2 microgram/ml) or even 68% (1.2 +/- 0.4 microgram/ml) highly significantly (P < 0.01). AUC0-infinity was significantly reduced from 33.5 +/- 5.9 to 19.4 +/- 6.9 microgram. h/ml (by 42%) or even to 11.9 +/- 3.3 microgram. h/ml (by 64%) (P < 0. 01). If aluminum magnesium hydroxide was given 2 h after gatifloxacin (treatment E), there was no significant reduction of concentration in serum but AUC0-infinity was significantly reduced from 31.4 +/- 3.4 to 25.9 +/- 5.3 microgram. h/ml (18%) (P < 0.01). Aluminum magnesium hydroxide given 4 h after gatifloxacin (treatment F) showed no influence on the gatifloxacin pharmacokinetics. Therefore, the optimal time between gatifloxacin application and the intake of an aluminum-containing antacid should be 4 h.  (+info)

Salmonellosis in North Thames (East), UK: associated risk factors. (4/380)

We assessed the rate of salmonella infections and risk factors associated with infection in North East Thames in 1993. Cases of culture confirmed infection were identified through microbiology laboratories and environmental health officers in the North East Thames. A total of 1730 cases were reported and 209 of these individuals (those who could be contacted within a 3-week interval after onset of symptoms) and matched controls were interviewed by telephone. In addition randomly selected controls were interviewed over a 4-month period about recent gastric acid lowering medication and antimicrobial ingestion. Sixty-six serotypes were identified: S. enteritidis was isolated from 1179 (69%) cases, S. typhimurium from 221 (13%), S. virchow from 77 (4%) and S. newport 25 (1%). Infections were more frequent in summer months. Highest rates were documented in children under 2 years of age for S. enteritidis (108/100,000) and under 1 year for S. typhimurium (36/100,000). Using the Townsend score, highest isolation rates of S. enteritidis were in more prosperous areas (36/100,000 vs. 27/100,000; odds ratio (OR) 1.3, 95% confidence intervals (CIs) 1.2-1.6, P < 0.0001), while for S. typhimurium, there was no relation between deprivation index and isolation rates areas (6.4/100,000 vs. 6.1/100,000; OR 1.1, 95% CIs 0.8-1.5, P = 0.77). The case control study showed a significant association between ingestion of products containing raw eggs and S. enteritidis infection (8/111 cases vs. 0/110 controls; OR undefined, lower 95% CIs 3.4). Individuals with salmonella infection were significantly more likely to have travelled abroad in the week before the onset of illness [42/186 (23%) vs. 1/182 (0.5%); OR 40, 95% CIs = 5.5-291, P < 0.001] and to report gastroduodenal disease [11/143 (7%) vs. 3/143 (2%); OR 5.0, 95% CIs = 1.1-23, P = 0.04]. There was an association between illness and gastric acid-lowering medications [unmatched controls OR 22.3 (95% CIs 1.5-3.7, P = 0.0002), matched controls OR 3.7 (95% CIs 1.0-3.8, P = 0.07)], but no association with antimicrobial ingestion.  (+info)

Evaluation of treatment regimens to cure Helicobacter pylori infection--a meta-analysis. (5/380)

OBJECTIVE: To assess effectiveness of treatment to cure Helicobacter pylori infection. DATA SYNTHESIS: Meta-analysis of 666 manuscripts (full papers, abstracts, letters to the editor) identified through Medline and a manual search (1986 to January 1998). Data were overviewed by regression analysis with weighted random effects models. SUBJECTS: 53 228 patients with H. pylori infection. INTERVENTIONS: Patients were treated with 132 different medication combinations. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Cure of H. pylori infection per protocol and intention-to-treat basis at least 28 days after treatment. RESULTS: The nationality of the patients and therapeutic regimen have a significant impact on the results, after correction for the heterogeneity in the precision of the cure rate caused by different study sizes and random effect for study. On the basis of the original sample size, cure rates of 80-85% were achieved using combinations of a proton-pump inhibitor or ranitidine bismuth citrate with two antibiotics including clarithromycin, amoxycillin and metronidazole or tinidazole. Comparable cure rates were also achieved using a combination of a proton-pump inhibitor or H2-receptor antagonist with bismuth subcitrate or tripotassium dicitrato bismuthate, metronidazole and tetracycline. The dose of clarithromycin influenced cure rates. Treatment duration did not influence the outcome. CONCLUSION: Several therapeutic regimens are eligible to cure H. pylori infection. However, none of the medication combinations were able to cure H. pylori infection in more than 85% of the patients assessed by intention-to-treat. The countries in which the studies were performed also had a significant impact on eradication rates.  (+info)

The effect of Helicobacter pylori eradication on gastro-oesophageal reflux. (6/380)

BACKGROUND: Increased prevalence of oesophagitis has been reported following eradication of Helicobacter pylori. We hypothesized that H. pylori eradication might increase gastro-oesophageal acid reflux in patients with reflux oesophagitis. METHODS: Twenty-five consecutive patients (13 male, 12 female) with H. pylori infection and reflux oesophagitis grade I (22 patients) or II (three patients) were enrolled; mean age 49.9 (range 33-75) years. Twenty-four hour intra-oesophageal pH recording was performed before and 12 weeks after eradication of H. pylori, which was achieved using bismuth subnitrate suspension 150 mg q.d.s., oxytetracycline 500 mg q.d.s. and metronidazole 400 mg t.d.s. for 10 days. Eradication was confirmed by 14C-urea breath test 12 weeks after completion of treatment. The patients did not receive acid-suppressive medication. RESULTS: All patients had abnormal gastro-oesophageal reflux before anti-H. pylori treatment. After treatment, there was no significant change in the percentage of total time oesophageal pH < 4 (P=0.46) in the 23 patients in whom the infection had been cured. Nine of the cured patients had increased acid exposure, whereas 14 had decreased acid exposure. No significant change in reflux symptom scores was found. There was no relationship between change in acid exposure and symptom improvement. CONCLUSIONS: Twelve weeks after H. pylori eradication there was no consistent change in gastro-oesophageal acid reflux in patients with mild or moderate reflux oesophagitis.  (+info)

Outcome of oesophagogastric carcinoma in young patients. (7/380)

The survival of young patients (< or = 50 years of age) with carcinoma of the oesophagus or stomach has been reported to be poorer than that of their older counterparts. The aim of the current study was to review the outcome of such young patients with oesophagogastric cancer and to compare the outcome in patients with carcinoma of the oesophagus/cardia with patients with carcinoma of the more distal stomach. The study population was 50 patients. Tumour location was oesophagus/cardia (n = 33) and gastric body/antrum (n = 17). The most common presenting symptoms were weight loss (66%), epigastric pain (54%), dysphagia (50%), and heartburn (40%). Seventeen patients had experienced foregut symptoms for a period of > or = 6 months. These patients were more likely to have symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and to have received acid suppression therapy than patients with shorter symptom durations. Only 20 patients underwent a potentially curative resection, while 10 underwent open and close laparotomy. The overall median survival was 7 months and the 5-year survival was 8%. Multivariate analysis revealed that surgical resection and UICC stage were the only factors that significantly influenced survival. There was no difference in the survival of patients with proximally situated tumours compared to those with distally located tumours. Wide variations in clinical practice were seen between different surgeons. Consequently, a multidisciplinary team designed to manage all patients with oesophagogastric cancer according to nationally agreed protocols has been established in our hospital. Earlier diagnosis of these tumours is to be encouraged, even if this necessitates the more liberal use of endoscopy in the evaluation of young patients with persistent foregut symptoms.  (+info)

Review article: drug interactions with agents used to treat acid-related diseases. (8/380)

Patients with acid-related diseases often need to take multiple medications. Treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection often includes either a histamine type 2 (H2)-receptor antagonist or a proton pump (H+,K(+)-ATPase) inhibitor (proton pump inhibitor), administered in conjunction with one or more antimicrobials. Also, treatment for acid-related diseases often requires extended therapy during which many concomitant medications may be administered for concurrent disease states. Polypharmacy may be the result, particularly in elderly patients, who are at increased risk for both acid-related and many other diseases. Thus, it is important to understand the potential for clinically significant drug-drug interactions in this setting. H2-receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors can influence the pharmacokinetic profiles of other commonly administered medications by elevating intragastric pH, which can alter drug absorption, and by interacting with the cytochrome P (CYP) 450 enzyme system, which can affect drug metabolism and clearance. Such interactions are particularly important when they affect the pharmacokinetics of drugs with narrow therapeutic ranges (e.g. warfarin, digoxin). In these cases, drug-drug interactions can result in significant toxicity and even death. There are marked differences among H2-receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors in their potential for such interactions. The oldest drugs in each class, cimetidine and omeprazole, respectively, have the greatest potential to alter CYP activity and change the pharmacokinetics of other drugs. The most recently developed H2-receptor antagonist, famotidine, and the newer proton pump inhibitors, rabeprazole and pantoprazole, are much less likely to induce or inhibit CYP and thereby change the metabolism of other medications. These differences are important when choosing medications for the safe treatment of patients with acid-related diseases.  (+info)

The theory proposed by antacid companies: Acid reflux is caused by excess stomach acid and the antacids works on reducing the stomach acid to keep the problem at bay. But trust me, this isnt the actual truth at all.. You dont necessarily need to have more amounts of stomach acid to get an acid reflux. Any amount of stomach acid crawling into the esophagus can lead to heartburn as the esophagus doesnt have a protective lining like stomach to shield it from the acid.. Now, you might be thinking - If antacids are not good then why do they provide relief from acid reflux?. Heres the explanation: antacids provide temporary relief by neutralizing the acid amount in the stomach. But the truth is - reflux of acid in esophagus is just a symptom of an underlying problem.. Unfortunately antacids are not capable of addressing it, thus you get recurrent acid refluxes once you stop taking them. With regular usage of antacids, you will neutralize the stomach acid to an undesirable level that leads to other ...

Antacids are salts of bases which will neutralize gastric acid.. Antacids are classified as either systemic or non-systemic, the difference being whether theyre absorbed by the GI tract or not.

The systemic ones are absorbed as they are in water soluble form in basic pH, so they can cause metabolic alkalosis and are therefore not preferred.. Counterindications:. Usage of aluminum and magnesium-containing antacids in people with renal failure causes hyperaluminaemia and hypermagnesaemia.. Interactions:. Because they alter the pH may they decrease the absorption of drugs like digoxin, anticoagulants and antibiotics.. Side effects:.

Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts by digestive liquids and enzymes so that the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide your body with energy. Healthy digestion is also closely linked with maintaining a healthy and strong immune system.. What is acid rebound?. Certain heartburn remedies, notably acid suppressing PPIs and H2 blockers, can cause a condition known as acid rebound. Some individuals experience acid rebound immediately after stopping the use of acid suppressors, which can cause the stomachs parietal cells to overcompensate in the production of stomach acid released by its proton pumps.

Antacids are one of mankinds oldest friends. If you develop occasional heartburn or indigestion, you take an antacid and get instant relief. No house should be without an antacid. Yet, if these symptoms occur daily or several times a day and especially at night, then there could be a more serious problem. There may be an ulcer or serious acid injury to the esophagus (food pipe). These conditions are rarely healed by antacids alone. A specific diagnosis must be made by the physician. If an ulcer is being caused by the stomach bacteria, Helicobacter pylori, or if gastroesophageal injury is occurring, specific potent medications are available to heal or control these conditions. Antacids, at best, just temporarily cover up the symptoms. They do not solve the problem.. ...
OTC antacids have been around for a long time, and are marketed under a number of different names, including Tums, Rolaids, Pepto Bismol, Mylanta, and Alka-Seltzer. These agents may rely on different compounds to achieve a reduction in stomach acid, including aluminum hydroxide, calcium carbonate and magnesium. Like any medication, overuse of these products can cause serious health problems, so dosing recommendations should always be followed. Because antacids neutralize stomach acids, they can interfere with the normal digestion process. As a result, the absorption of certain nutrients may also be blocked. If these products do not provide relief, you should see your doctor, rather than taking increased amounts of antacids.. Antacids containing certain compounds may exacerbate other medical conditions; for instance, antacids containing sodium may cause an increase in blood pressure in those with high blood pressure; calcium carbonate can increase the risk of kidney stones in individuals who are ...

Magnesium Oxide is the oxide salt of magnesium with antacid, laxative and vascular smooth muscle relaxant activities. Magnesium combines with water to form magnesium hydroxide which reacts chemically to neutralize or buffer existing quantities of stomach acid; stomach-content and intra-esophageal pH rise, resulting in a decrease in pepsin activity.. Under the generic name algeldrate, aluminium hydroxide is used as an antacid. Aluminium hydroxide is preferred over other alternatives such as sodium bicarbonate because Al(OH) 3, being insoluble, does not increase the pH of stomach above 7 and hence, does not trigger secretion of excess stomach acid.. Antacids are quick-relief methods that work by directly counteracting the acidity inside your stomach. The presence of these acids is natural in the stomach because they work to help digest food.. /Exptl Ther/ Aluminium-containing phosphate binders were replaced by a calcium and magnesium carbonate-containing antacid in 20 patients on long-term ...

A recent study published in the prestigious online Journal of American Medicine (JAMA) put a plant-based, mostly vegetarian diet to the test.. Researchers set out to investigate how a dietary shift to a plant-based diet would compare to antacid medications for relieving acid reflux. (1,2). The study involved 200 patients who had laryngopharyngeal reflux - a condition in which the stomach acid backs up into the throat.

The effectiveness of each variable was analyzed with a 3-Factor Design of Experiment. The only factor deemed significant was the single effect of magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2), and the original hypothesis which claimed the high values of the three variables would produce the biggest change was rejected.. ...

The gastroenterologist should be engaged in treatment of a gastritis. He prescribes drugs only after a thorough examination and refinement of the type of gastritis. The effectiveness of treatment will depend not only on the drugs, but also the stage of the disease, the extent of its incidence, the causes and compliance with all prescriptions of the doctor. Treatment of gastritis is always complex. It includes taking medications, a special diet and folk remedies. With severe pain, the doctor will prescribe painkillers like No-shpy. It is not recommended to get involved with them. These drugs do not treat the disease, but only relieve the symptoms and, with constant use, can adversely affect the condition of the stomach. Antacids are prescribed for gastritis. These are drugs that neutralize the effect of gastric juice. They envelop the walls of the stomach, protecting them from damage and allowing them to recover. These drugs include Almagel, Gastal, Gaviscon, Maalox. Most antacids are available ...

Food and Antacid Effects Administration of meloxicam capsules following a high fat breakfast (75 g of fat) resulted in mean peak drug levels (i.e., Cmax) being increased by approximately 22% while the extent of absorption (AUC) was unchanged. The time to maximum concentration (Tmax) was achieved between 5 and 6 hours. In comparison, neither the AUC nor the Cmax values for meloxicam suspension were affected following a similar high fat meal, while mean Tmax values were increased to approximately 7 hours. No pharmacokinetic interaction was detected with concomitant administration of antacids. Based on these results, meloxicam can be administered without regard to timing of meals or concomitant administration of antacids.. Distribution The mean volume of distribution (Vss) of meloxicam is approximately 10 L. Meloxicam is ~99.4% bound to human plasma proteins (primarily albumin) within the therapeutic dose range. The fraction of protein binding is independent of drug concentration, over the ...

Acid reflux develops in the entire body when there is a malfunction of esophageal muscular tissues. When this malfunction happens, acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus.

Overproduction of acids or damage to the epithelial lining in the stomach leads to a condition called gastritis or acidity as commonly known. Ulcers are actually sores occurring in the internal lining of the stomach and often affect the duodenum as well in uncontrolled or untreated gastritis. Helicobacter pylori bacteria, analgesic medications (pain killers i.e. NSAIDs like aspirin, ibuprofen etc.) and anti-inflammatory steroids are among the common causes of stomach ulcers. These medications prevent the outermost cells of the stomach to protect against the damage of self-produced acids. Other frequent causative factors are cigarette smoking, psychological stress and excessive alcohol consumption. These factors may accentuate the development of ulcers or even hinder with its healing. The patients with ulcers commonly experience upper abdominal pain. The management of ulcer involves early intervention with antacids, acid suppressant drugs and antibiotics against H.pylori bacteria, which when ...

Amneal Pharmaceuticals has received FDA approval to market the first generic nizatidine oral solution to treat heartburn, gastroesophageal reflux disease and conditions associated with excess acid secretion.
Earlier I wrote about the causes of heartburn, also called GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease). Now, lets talk about how to make it better.. First scenario: Youre minding your own business, its late at night, you have an attack of heartburn, and you dont have any medicine. What can you do? Well, you can go to the pantry, and make your own antacid by mixing up 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in half a glass of water. It will neutralize the acid. But as with any antacid (see below), the effect wont last forever. Some foods are soothing for the acid-inflamed stomach, as well. Soda crackers (like Saltines) have baking soda, and can help soak up the acid. Also, apples are your friend. Just eating a plain old apple can help disarm the stomach acid. Some people swear by apple cider vinegar: A tablespoon, mixed with a tablespoon of honey in a cup of warm water can provide temporary relief, as well.. But this is just emergency stuff, best for the occasional flare-up.. The next scenario: Its not ...
Today numerous drugs are available for the systematic therapy. While antacids just neutralize respectively chemically bind the acid, H2-receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors (PPI) stop its production in the stomach by different mechanisms. But the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Verdauungs- und Stoffwechselerkrankungen (DGVS) (German society for digestion- and metabolic diseases) dissuades from H2-receptor antagonists since in about half of the cases they do not lead to a patient free of symptoms. Those have to be treated afterwards with PPI. In addition antacids and stomach protecting substances like alginate are not recommended for mono-therapy. The guidelines recommend accordingly starting with PPI, after a few weeks and decreasing symptoms it is indicated to reduce the dosage of the drug. PPI reduce acid resection and thus the acidity of the stomach - which is good for the cause. On the other hand this is related with a decreased resorption of calcium, vitamin D3, vitamin C, vitamin B12 ...
The recommended adult dose of misoprostol ranges from 400 µg to 800 µg daily, taken in 2 to 4 equally divided doses (e.g., 100 µg 4 times daily, 200 µg twice daily, 200 µg 4 times daily).. Misoprostol should be taken with food or milk to reduce the risk of side effects, such as diarrhea. Also, to reduce the risk of diarrhea, avoid antacids that contain magnesium. Antacids containing aluminum (but not magnesium) may be used to relieve symptoms such as heartburn..

You dont need to stop taking antacids entirely. Indeed, many people with gastritis rely on them to manage the pain caused by stomach acid. However, antacids do not treat the underlying problem and can cause long term complications like constipation or diarrhea and an out-of-whack electrolyte balance. Its ok to reach for the Tums when youre really suffering, but you have a much better chance to heal your gastritis by making dietary changes rather than simply treating the painful symptoms.. Your stomach will thank you for taking the time to experiment with your tolerance for the foods on our list. To get accurate results, eliminate all potentially troubling foods at once and then test just one at a time. Many people find they can tolerate a certain amount of tomatoes or dairy, for example, but if you are eating a complex food that contains both, it will be difficult to tell what triggers resulting inflammation. With a little luck, you should still be able to enjoy your favorite foods in ...

You can make changes in your diet that will help you digest milk, or you can get your calcium from other foods.. Milk and milk products are an important source of calcium. Your goal should be to get 1,200 to 1,500 mg of calcium each day. Children, teenagers, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and women who have gone through menopause should take calcium supplements if they cant drink enough milk or eat enough dairy products to get this much calcium.. Ask your doctor if you should take calcium supplements. There are many kinds. The supplements with an oyster shell base are absorbed best. Check the amount of calcium on the product label.
