Consumer Review: I Get Really Depressed After Taking Calcium Carbonate.

I have tried taking a calcium supplement on two different occasions. The first time was about two years ago. I took two 600 mg tablets one evening and woke up the next morning with a crushing depression. It scared me so much that I figured it must be the calcium and stopped. The depression left about two hours after it began.

Ten days ago I tried again, taking two 600 mg tablets each day. This time I noticed a more subtle depression after two days. I continued taking the calcium, figuring the side effect might go away eventually, but I've gotten so depressed that I started taking Sam-e to combat it. I am about to give up on the calcium. I am taking calcium carbonate, is there some other form that might not have this effect on me? Thanks for your reply!

You're taking too much of the calcium supplement.What you need is to go on a light dosage for it to have any effect whatsoever because your liver ultimately sorts out the proper proportions of calcium that your body needs.
