Calcium is best absorbed when taken with a meal. This is especially important for people with low stomach acid, such as elderly individuals or people taking acid-reducing medications.

Take care, best wishes!

so if you become aware of special drug interaction or side effects plz tell me.
for example today one person come to hospital with sever bleeding of Cornea and one of her eyes became Blind.
because she was on warfarin,and use Diclofenac ( only 2 times ) for her leg pain. warfarin and NSAIDs has very bad interaction with each other.
