1,500 is the standard dose. I would def. say don't do 50,000 w/o your dr. prescribing it. I would do the 1,500 and make sure it has magnesium, phosphorus, and vit. D so that you utilize as much of it as possible.

My doc said that a person can not absorb more than 500mg of calcium at a time. The rest will just get eliminated. She suggests 500mg twice a day.

Vit D is much more important in regards to FM. D3 is absorbed the best. It's good to have your level checked so that you know how much you need to take.
Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections. hugs Sharon
