Recommendations

Calcium may reduce the absorption of some medicines such as fluoride, phosphorus, levotiroxine, bisphosphonates, antibiotics such as tetracyclines and fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin) if the calcium is administered concomitantly with these medicines. These medicines must be administered at least four hours before or after taking calcium-containing products.

In high doses, calcium may increase the effect of digoxin and the risk of cardiac arrhythmias and may reduce the effectiveness of calcium blockers (such as verapamil); for the patients treated with these medicines, the administration of calcium requires the monitoring of serum calcium levels.
