Tums overdose in a two year old?

I have a call in to my doctor but anyone have experience with this? My 2 year old just ate like half a bottle of tums. I'm concerned about od'ing on antacids.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. Overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, constipation, confusion, delirium, stupor, and coma.

Ok I called poison control and they said I had to take away her milk and anything that had calcium in it. she will probably either become constipated or have diarhea tomorrow. She was doing really well potty training today too, I imagine that this will set us back. I could kick my husband, those are his. I think we need to get rid of all the chairs in the dining room too since thats how she got onto the kitchen counter. ugh.

oh my goodness! I hope she's doing okay today, I don't know which would be worse, the diarrhea or the constipation!
