How much mg calcium do you take everyday?

So it’s a known fact that steroids cause osteoporosis and ostopenia. How much calcium do you take if you’re at risk?

    I currently take 1200 mg and 800mg Vit D-latest DEXA showed the osteopenia hadn't progressed to the point I needed anything else

    Thanks. I was given 1000 mg. And I know that’s the daily required value. I was just wondering how much is usually prescribed. I am going to go get the DEXA scan done soon. I have been worried because I’ve been having muscle pain as well as PCOS.
