It probably is the Calcium, if you have not taken it before. Basically, you will lose calcium from continued diarrhea and by taking it as a supplement, it helps your bowel to absorb back more water naturally. However, magnesium should counteract the constipation. Maybe reduce the dose a little until your body adjusts to it.
