Okay, FINALLY one my 6-year old will take. She has one per day with her Milk of Magnesia tablets and is finally moving her bowels more frequently. Unfortunately, my two other kids won't take them regularly. These are big wafers.
Love This Website!

Does not irritate my stomach the way other calcium tablets/ liquids do, even on an empty stomach. Does not cause constipation. Menopausal females should take 1500 mg of calcium per day, spaced out in three separate doses, 2 tablets at a time. The body can supposedly only absorb 500 mg at a time. I find that I must wait at least 1 1/2 hours between 500 mg doses or I will experience the opposite of constipation the next day. Also recommend 680 mg Strontium at least 2 hours after last dose, before sleep, which can prevent & reverse osteoporosis.
The bottle smelled like perfume & the wafers tasted the same. I threw the bottle away.
