See details: Recent studies have questioned whether supplemental calcium has any benefit for preventing or treating bone loss. I currently do not recommend supplemental calcium above small doses. If you are on omeprazole, take calcium citrate, not calcium carbonate. Finally, get a vitamin d level checked and adjust the vitamin d dose accordingly.
