or we need with Zometa to have CA all the month
I'm not sure I understand your question. You can investigate how Zometa works online and it will tell you if it's potency decreases during the month. I believe that it is given monthly or quarterly so that it will build up in your system to provide constant dosage. Your doctor can explain any questions you might have. If the doctor prescribed calcium with the Zometa, then I'm certain he has a reason. These meds (Zometa, Boniva, Fosamax, etc.) will absorb calcium, so I'm sure your doctor is trying to balance the calcium loss out with the calcium supplements. I was on Zometa for 8-1/2 years and took a calcium pill every night. Now I take Fosamax and take the calcium nightly as well as 5000 units of Vitamin D. Best advice, talk to your doctor. He knows your individual case better than anyone. Best wishes for good health.
