Renal side effects have included renal failure, formation of renal calcium, and a single case report of a calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate-filled renal cyst.[Ref]
Gastrointestinal side effects have included flatulence and diarrhea with frequent use of magnesium salts. Magnesium (Mg) toxicity has been associated with nausea (Mg levels of 4 to 5 mEq/L) and rare cases of paralytic ileus (Mg levels greater than 5 mEq/L).[Ref]
Rebound hyperacidity has been associated with calcium salt antacids. This side effect does not appear to be due to the acid buffering capacity of calcium carbonate, but is a consequence of a specific action of calcium on the parietal cell.
Rare cases of calcium carbonate gallstones have been reported in the pediatric literature.[Ref]
