Rules For Taking Calcium Medicine?
Morning, I want to ask if the 500mg calcium lactate drug for pregnant women is taken before or after eating, right?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Calcium lactate is a supplement that works both to support calcium intake or also to overcome calcium deficiency in the blood (hypocalcemia). As is known, during pregnancy, calcium intake during pregnancy is very important to be maintained to support the growth of the fetus in the womb, not only the bones, but also muscles, nervous system, heart, hormones, and other organ systems.
Although included in the supplement class, its consumption during pregnancy, especially in the long run, should still be carried out under the supervision of a doctor. Because, although rare, consumption of this supplement in sensitive people can also cause side effects, such as allergies, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dry mouth, frequent thirst, constipation, frequent urination, and so on.
Are there certain side effects that you experience after taking this supplement?
If not, then to work optimally, ideally this supplement is taken before meals. However, if you feel a complaint that is quite heavy, such as nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, and so on, this supplement can also be consumed at night before bedtime, the important thing is not too close to the meal (give 1-2 hours pause after eating).
That's all our explanation. For complete information, please consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
