Usually adult daily dose requirements of calcium orally is between 800mg to 1200mg but need may be raised in severe defficiencies patients or in lactating mothers.

You can find few with names of calcitrate, abocal or qaslan but look for the dose mentioned and daily tablets requirement should be discussed with your primary physician.
