Calcium Citrate and Calcitriol Tablets – Calsid-CT
Calcium Citrate – Calcium Citrate is the calcium salt of citric acid. Calcium Citrate is used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in people who do not get enough calcium from their diets. It may be used to treat conditions caused by low calcium levels such as bone loss (osteoporosis), weak bones (osteomalacia/rickets), decreased activity of the parathyroid gland (hypoparathyroidism), and certain muscle disease (latent tetany). It may also be used in certain patients to make sure they are getting enough calcium (e.g., women who are pregnant, nursing, or postmenopausal, people taking certain medications such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, or prednisone). It is used as a source of calcium in a variety of over the counter supplements.
Calcitriol – Calcitriol is a synthetic version of Vitamin D3 used to treat calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (decreased functioning of the parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone disease in people with chronic kidney failure. Before regular vitamin D can be used by the body, it needs to be changed to the active form by the liver and kidneys. Calcitriol is used in patients with kidney disease who can’t make enough of the active form of Vitamin D. Calcitriol is usually used along with specific diet recommendations and sometimes other medications.
MECHANISM OF ACTION: Calsid-CT tablet, a combination of Calcium Citrate and Calcitriol is a dietary supplement used when the amount of calcium taken in the diet is not enough. Calcium is needed by the body for healthy bones, muscles, nervous system, and heart. Calcitriol enhances calcium absorption and helps in bone mineralization.
SIDE EFFECTS: Excessive amount commonly results in weakness, headache, nausea, constipation, urinary tract infections, and abdominal pain.
