I agree with the above post. Just increase your magnesium citrate intake until it is no longer an issue. Magnesium is the yin to calciums yang and worst case scenario you will very relaxed.

I'm not an expert or anything but i'd guess you're bit overboard on the Calcium dosage. Don't forget that, for calcium to be absorbed, you also need Vitamin D. Vitamin K also plays an important role in directing calcium to the right spots. (more)
