Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX Usually low calcium is not seen in an adult male. Thus I will recommend that you should first get serum Calcium levels checked in blood along with Vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels. Since excessive calcium may have side effects like stone formation etc, you should take calcium for short duration only, just to tide over the stress-period. For short duration, you can take Syrup Osteocalcium B12 1 tbsp BD for one month. Hope it helps Dr Vaishalee
