He is used :
This medication should not be used in the following cases:
WARNING (Contents)
This medicine contains vitamin D: its overdose exposes you to serious side effects. It is present in many medicines, some of which are available in self-medication: avoid associating them without medical advice.
Do not prolong the treatment beyond the prescribed time: blood tests may be necessary to check the absence of abnormal accumulation of calcium in the body.
When this medication is used to treat decalcification due to prolonged bed rest, treatment should not be started until walking resumes.
Follow an interval of at least 2 hours between taking this drug and cyclins , thyroid hormones, biphosphonates, quinolones or iron, zinc or strontium medications.
Inform your pharmacist or doctor if you are taking digitalis or diuretics .
There are also food interactions: foods known to be rich in oxalic acid (spinach, rhubarb, sorrel, cocoa, tea) or phytic acid (chocolate, whole grains, dried vegetables) can reduce calcium absorption. It is therefore recommended to take this medicine away from meals containing these foods.
This medication may be used in pregnant or nursing women, but the dosage prescribed by the doctor should not be exceeded.
Hypercalcemia during pregnancy could be harmful to the unborn child. Be sure not to take several medications containing vitamin D during pregnancy.
This medication should be taken at a distance from certain foods (see Interactions).
The tablets should be swallowed with a large glass of water (200 ml). To facilitate grip and avoid a false road, especially in the elderly, the tablet can be cut in two parts before being swallowed with a large glass of water.

Usual dosage:

  • Adult and elderly: 1 tablet, 2 times a day.
  • Pregnant woman: 1 tablet per day.
TIPS (summary)
Taking this medication does not dispense with the regular consumption of dairy products, naturally rich in calcium.
Uncommon: hypercalcaemia , hypercalciuria (excess calcium in the urine may promote kidney stones).
Rarely: constipation, nausea, bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, rash, itching.
Exceptionally: swelling of the throat, angioedema .

GLOSSARY (summary)

Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.

Deficit usually involving nutrients, vitamins, minerals, etc. A diversified diet is the best prevention of deficiencies.

Family of antibiotics used especially in the treatment of acne and certain genital infections.

Family of drugs related to digitalis, substance derived from the purple foxglove (common plant). Digitalis, used in cardiology, slow down the heart and strengthen its contractions.

Medication allowing increased kidney water removal. Most often, this loss of water follows the loss of salts caused by the drug (salidiuretic).
Diuretics are mainly used in the treatment of high blood pressure, while their mechanism of action in this disease is poorly understood. They are also prescribed in acute or chronic heart failure, edema and other rarer ailments.
These drugs cause loss of sodium and potassium (except for some of them called "potassium-sparing"). Their prolonged administration therefore requires regular blood potassium control, to avoid heart problems that may result from hypokalemia (lack of potassium in the blood). Lack of sodium is another possible but less frequent consequence of the prolonged use of diuretics; it is also detected by a blood test.

Excess of calcium in the blood, due to illness or the use of certain drugs (excess vitamin D).

Abnormal increase in calcium in urine.

renal failure
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.

Fragilisation of the bones, which become porous and brittle.

Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.

Allergy edema usually affects the face. Quincke edema results in a sometimes spectacular swelling. Eyelids are often the first to be affected. In rare cases where edema affects the throat, respiratory problems may occur and urgent treatment is required.

Excessive intake of a drug may result in an increase in the intensity of adverse effects or even in the development of specific adverse effects.
This overdose may result from accidental or voluntary poisoning for suicide, so consult your local Poison Control Center (listed in the appendix to the book). However, in most cases, overdose is the result of an error in the understanding of the prescription, or the search for an increase in efficacy by exceeding the recommended dosage. Finally, untimely self-medication may lead to excessive absorption of the same substance contained in different drugs. Some drugs are particularly prone to this risk because they are (wrongly) considered to be harmless: vitamins A and D, aspirin, etc. Stopping or decreasing drug intake helps to remove the disorders associated with an overdose.

Treatment that complements the action of a specific treatment, but generally does not achieve healing on its own.

An essential ingredient for the growth and proper functioning of the body. Vitamin requirements are normally covered by a varied diet. In developed countries, only vitamin D deficiency, in the young child or the old man who is exposed to the sun, justifies systematic supplementation. Superior intake, especially with medicines, can lead to overdose and various disorders (mainly vitamins A and D).

  • Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
  • Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (airways), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.
