Adcal causing stomach cramps


Following surgery, my onc prescribed Zoladex injections, Anastrazole and Adcal tablets to help avoid osteoporosis.


i get night sweats and tiredness which I’m hoping might settle but the Calcium tablets give me bad stomach cramps, wind and bloating.  I’m meant to have two a day. I stopped them for a few days because the cramps were so bad and after talking to my gp now have a dissolvable one at night with a yogurt and milkshake during the day .


i just wondered if anyone else had this problem and what might help.

thank you
