Ergocalciferol is classified as a vitamin D analog. It helps your small intestine absorb more calcium and phosphorus from the food or supplements you intake to help your bones become stronger.
How should I take it?
Drisdol is available in 50000 IU capsules intended for oral administration. Swallow the capsule as a whole and do not crush, chew, or open the capsule, with or without food, but it is recommended to take it with food.

Always consult your doctor about any concerns you may have when taking Drisdol.
What if I missed a dose?
