About Calinept Tablet 15's

Calinept Tablet 15's belongs to the class of nutritional supplements used to prevent or treat low blood calcium levels in people who cannot get sufficient calcium from their diets. Calinept Tablet 15's effectively treats various conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body, such as osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), osteomalacia/rickets (weak bones), hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormone), and latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels).

Calinept Tablet 15's is a combination of two drugs, namely: Calcium carbonate (mineral) and Calcitriol (vitamin D3). Calcium carbonate is a mineral that is used to prevent or treat a calcium deficiency. It provides essential nutrients to maintain bone formation. Calcitriol is a human-made form of Vitamin D3 and treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the decreased activity of parathyroid glands) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure. It raises Vitamin D levels and thereby increases calcium levels in the blood. This helps in improving the absorption rate of calcium from the stomach.

Take Calinept Tablet 15's with food or as prescribed by your doctor and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience constipation, stomach upset, or gas. Most of these side effects of Calinept Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Calinept Tablet 15's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult a doctor before using Calinept Tablet 15's. Calinept Tablet 15's should be used with caution in children and only if prescribed by a doctor. Calcitriol in Calinept Tablet 15's can affect growth in children. Inform your doctor if your child is not growing at a normal rate while using Calinept Tablet 15's. If you have cancer, kidney stones, high levels of calcium or vitamin D in the blood, parathyroid gland disorder, liver, kidney, or heart problems, sarcoidosis (growth of tiny collections of inflammatory cells in any part of the body), Crohn's disease, Whipple's disease (a bacterial infection affecting joints and digestive system), achlorhydria (absence of stomach acid), inform your doctor before taking Calinept Tablet 15's.
