Talk to your doctor: Many people believe that calcium is better to take at nighttime. You only need to take if once a day. 4mg is more than yuu need. Calicum is important for our bone , heart and muscle health. Please talk to your doctor about taking calcium suppliments if you are having kidney problems.
