    I've taken calcium supplements for several years to offset osteopenia and have tried both pills and chews, containing both calcium carbonate and citrate. The chews were convenient to carry and easy to take, but there were times when I just didn't want something that sweet. Plus, it was easy to forget to take them because I couldn't keep them in my pill box with my other meds/supplements--and that meant that sometimes I took them without food so they probably weren't as well absorbed. I also tried calcium citrate pills, which don't require you take them with food, but was put off by the extra number of pills I had to take and the added cost. I like this product because I can take 2 pills with breakfast and be done with it for the day--one dose means I rarely forget to take them and since you're supposed to take them with breakfast, taking them with food is no issue. I also have had no side effects from calcium carbonate, as mentioned in another review. The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because I'd prefer they be made with 100% calcium citrate instead of a mix of the two, and they are a bit pricey. Also, there's no way to know for sure whether they are more or less effective than other types of calcium supplements that require multiple doses throughout the day.

    I take calcium for my osteoporosis, and have used other Citrical products because they are very digestible. I was disappointed to find that the slow release contain calcium carbonate and I am experiencing terrible flatulence from it. I had no problems with citrical petites or regular because they are made from calcium citrate. Just a word to the wise, if you like convenience from once a day, go ahead, but beware of unpleasant side effects.

          Comments about Citracal Calcium + D, Slow Release 1200, Coated Tablets, 80 ea:

          Bayer makes a great product. I feel confident that I am getting the right amount of calcium daily because my body is absorbing all of it a little bit at a time. Bayer slow release is so easy to take and does not upset my stomach at all. I take two tablets in the morning and that's it--my 1200 mg requirement for the day.

            I like this calcium because it has vitamin D and you can take it on an empty stomach, unlike many calcium supplements. I like the Petite better, but haven't found it with vitamin D. I would recommend this calcium & vitamin D supplement.

                I have to take four pills a day to get 1260 mg citracal--even though slow release I still have to take two pills, and I do not want calcium carbonate.

                  I like the fact that it is time released, so you only have to take it once a day. Much easier to remember to take. Don't know if it is effective yet.
