In brief: 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.

The daily requirement is 1000-2000 mg. A supplement of 4 mg is inconsequential. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/calcium-supplements/MY01540
