What is the maximum dose of Calcium for a menopausal woman ?

I used to take 500 mgs of Calcium but now I have been told that we have to take 1000mgs of Calcium/day. Is it safe. I hear excess of Calcium can damage the kidney. Will you guys please guide me ?

I take a calcium pill also along with other vitamins and some multi vitamins too. I am not sure if I am going through menopause yet or not but I bet it is very possible because I had a hysterectomy back in 1995. I am only 36 years old right now but i have alot of hot flashes and mood swings. I have never heard that too much calcium is not good for you though. That is new news to me. I will have to check up on that.
