I saw a difference at 500 mg more per day (I take one 500 mg suppliment; my diet is moderate in calcium). I take the Viactive Calcium Chews. I don't know what kind of calcium it is, but it does contain something to help your body absorb the calcium. I do take it all month long. I think I read that it takes two cycles to make a difference?? I read so much I can't remember the details now. Sorry.

My GYN suggesting taking it before bed as I take my multivitamins at dinner, so I keep a supply in the bathroom and chew one while I'm washing my face (I do my teeth last). It really made quite a difference, and there are studies that show it works. Try it! [My PMS "went away" before I started Lexapro, so I can't say if Lex helps with PMS or not...]

However, I get so impatient during those 8 days and I am sure my husband would like something to change. I was given 10 mg and told to cut it in half, so I am going to take my first 5 mg tonight. With the winds so bad out here in California, I am hoping that this will help me sleep. I will let you know how it goes. Oh, I was given Zoloft to start with and that stuff made me feel like I was drunk. Then it made me very tense and I was clenched my jaw. Okay, enough babbling. I will let you know how it goes.
