My friend took an entire bottle of a calcium supplement because it tasted good. He took about 25k iu calcium and I don't have a number here but he took 6150% approximately more vitamin d then recommended. What is going to happen to him? Will he be ok? Does he need a doctors attention now? What will happen if he doesn't drink water or has another bottle?
"The symptoms of a single, acute overdose from accidentally or intentionally taking too many calcium supplements or calcium-containing antacids at one time include stomachache, constipation or diarrhea, headache, nausea and vomiting. An overdose can ultimately lead to mental confusion, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and coma.
For an intentional or accidental overdose of calcium pills, call the National Poison Control Center hotline at 1-800-222-1222 from anywhere in the United States."
