I just came across something called "milk-alkali syndrome".

Milk-alkali syndrome (MAS) consists of hypercalcemia, various degrees of renal failure, and metabolic alkalosis as a result of ingestion of large amounts of calcium and absorbable alkali. This syndrome was discovered in the 1930s after treatment of peptic ulcer disease with milk and sodium bicarbonate had become common.1 Initially considered a rare condition, MAS is now believed to be the third most common cause of in-hospital hypercalcemia, after hyperparathyroidism and malignant neoplasms.2 As newer treatments of peptic ulcer disease were introduced, calcium carbonate became the predominant source of calcium and alkali.3 Hypercalcemia can be severe. Renal failure is generally reversible, but impairment in renal function may persist in some cases. Milk-Alkali Syndrome

Define “ large amounts”

Click on the linked study. Looks like we're talking at least 8 grams per day, and probably more like 12-20 grams per day of calcium carbonate. That would be anywhere from 3.2g to 8g of elemental calcium equivalent, in the form of supplements.
