    Thanks DrD! :) She doesn't necessarily need to take it in the morning, she just can't have pretty much anything 4 hours before or 4 hours after. It does make the timing a bit of a challenge. We may be setting the alarm for 4 a.m. if we don't find another solution.

    JDouglas13: Unfortunately, most of the non-dairy creamers do contain calcium. Even if you made your own nut milk from almonds or cashews, those nuts contain calcium.

    This is not a creamer, but I use about 1/2 to 1 tsp of Melt organic spread in my coffee or tea for flavoring. The label indicates it's organic, dairy free, soy free, and calcium is not in the ingredient list. The main ingredient is coconut oil. The bonus is that it's a healthy fat and reduces hunger. You can find it in a square tub on the top shelf near the butter @HT, and I think there's a $1 coupon available via their website. I'm partial to the honey flavored variety.

    Also, you might check to see if the medication really needs to be taken at breakfast time in the morning. I've heard of people putting their meds on the nightstand with a glass of water, and taking them in the wee hours when they wake up anyway for a restroom trip, so that by breakfast time they're free to enjoy calcium items again.

    miacarre, I can't get the coupon to come up on coupons.com? What did you do different ? Would love to get that deal.

    Can y'all help me please? I am looking for a dairy-free, CALCIUM-free, unsweetened coffee creamer for my DW. She is a total coffee (with half & half) addict, and just started a new med that needs to be taken in the morning that cannot get mixed with calcium for 4 hours. She tried the vanilla Silk Almond creamer, but it was really sweet.

    Thanks for any suggestions or ideas you might have! :)

    Hi Faye. I have a question/ suggestion.
    Could we devote a separate segment/blog that is for " Sharing Catalina Deals/ Coupons only" ?
    Ever since the website was shut down there is no way of finding out what deals are out there unless you happen to get a printout of an upcoming offer.
    Maybe we could all pitch in and let everyone know when someone gets such printouts and share the info.
    Unless there is a new website I am not aware of.
    Thanks in advance!
