Hi! I also take large amount of Calcium, and don’t have that side effect. Common belief is that calcium carbonate may have constipation as a side effect. The belief is not substantiated by scientific evidence. Relation between calcium and constipation isn’t confirmed. Calcium is not usually promoted as an antidiarrheal agent. So, I think that there isn’t relation between Calcium and constipation. You should eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. If you think that constipation is side effect of calcium or some drug tell that to your doctor.
