Calcium Supplements like Shelcal ( for elderly) and Calci max suspension(for children) contain Calcium carbonate as one of the main components.People say that one should avoid these supplements as the Calcium carbonate present in these can cause stones after a period of time. If this is true, kindly advise alternate calcium supplements for elderly as well as children which are totally safe.

These supplements are safe as long as they are given in prescribed doses for a specific duration for a specific deficiency. If there is a diagnosed deficiency of any nutrient, it has to be evaluated and then correction given. These are drugs and no one should use any drug for prolonged durations in unspecified doses.
