Can I take citracal calcium plus vitamin d slow realease at the same time as centrum energy multivitamin/multimineral?
Yes you may: Yes you may. Calcium absorption tends to plateau when a single dose exceeds 500-600 mg. Even though the two together would exceed this number, you may be fine because one is slow release.
