Consumption Info
Drug quanitty Your doctor will tell you how many capsules to take, or to give your child. At first you will have weekly blood tests to check the levels of some substances in your blood. These tests are to check the levels of calcium, an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase or the parathyroid hormone. This is so your doctor knows that you are taking the dose that is right for you. When you are getting the correct dose you will not need blood tests so often.You may also have other tests such as X-rays. This is also so your doctor knows that the dose is right for you.Your doctor may adjust your dose. Your doctor may ask you to take more or less capsules depending on your test results. You may get too much calcium or phosphate in your blood when you take this medicine. Please read section 4 of this leaflet so you can spot any signs this may be happening to you.
