There is no specific: ...contraindication to taking these two supplements in the same 24 hour period. 1800 mg of calcium is 2x higher than the total recommended from food and supplements. Taking calcium supplements WITH food increases their absorption. At high doses, calcium can cause digestive problems. It's important to stay hydrated when taking calcium supplements of any kind.
