Buy Rocaltrol brand or generic Calcitriol prescription drug from Canada
Why is Rocaltrol prescribed?
Calcitriol (Rocaltrol) is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of low levels of calcium in the blood. It is also used for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (increased levels of parathyroid hormone) and metabolic disease in patients with chronic renal failure.
What does it do?
Hyperparathyroidism is a condition wherein there is an increase in the parathyroid hormone being secreted by the parathyroid glands. The parathyroid hormone regulates the amount of calcium in the body for proper functioning. In secondary hyperparathyroidism, calcium levels are depleted, causing the parathyroid glands to become overworked. Calcitriol is classified as a vitamin D analog that regulates the amount of parathyroid hormone produced by the parathyroid glands and it makes the body more able to utilize calcium obtained from food or supplements.
How should I use it?
Rocaltrol and its generic equivalents are currently available as 250mg capsules. Each capsule should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Rocaltrol?
Before taking Calcitriol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
