CALCIUM LACTATE (Calcii lactas).

Compared to chloride, calcium lactate is better tolerated, since it does not irritate the mucous membrane. Compared with calcium gluconate, more effective when taken orally, as it contains a higher percentage of calcium.
Take calcium lactate orally at 0.5 - 1.0 g per dose in powders, tablets or in a 5 - 10% aqueous solution (dissolved in hot water) 2 - 3 times a day.
Release form: tablets of 0.5 g in a package of 10 pieces.
