One tablet twice a day with food and a full glass of water or as prescribed by the physician.
Calcium supplements are best taken with a meal to ensure optimal absorption. Drink a full glass of water (8 ounces) with each dose, unless the patient is on kidney dialysis.
Do not use more medicine or use it more often than the doctor tells to. If the patient needs to take more than one dose each day, take each dose at evenly spaced times, unless the doctor has told otherwise.
Missed Dose: If the patient missed a dose, take the missed dose as soon as the patient remembers. If it is almost time for the next dose, wait until then to use the medicine and skipped dose. Do not take a double dose to compensate for a forgotten tablet.
