About Calsiam Tablet 15's

Calsiam Tablet 15's belongs to the class of ‘Multi-minerals’ primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. Calsiam 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). Calsiam Tablet 15's can also be given to pregnant, nursing, and postmenopausal women to ensure that they are getting enough calcium. 

Calsiam Tablet 15's consists of two medicines, namely: Calcium carbonate(mineral) and  Cholecalciferol(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 and maintenance. Cholecalciferol(Vitamin D3) is used in the absorption of calcium in the blood. Which helps in the processing of essential minerals in the body like Calcium and Phosphorus. Lack of Vitamin D3 results in bone weakening, bone pain, and skin diseases. 

Take Calsiam Tablet 15's as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Calsiam Tablet 15's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, Calsiam Tablet 15's can cause side effects like constipation or stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, mood changes, weakness, tiredness, fast or pounding heartbeat, bone/muscle pain, and headache. Most of these side effects of Calsiam Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Calsiam Tablet 15's or its inactive components, please inform your doctor. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking Calsiam Tablet 15's. Higher doses of Vitamin D than the recommended daily dose should be used in pregnant women only when advised by the doctor. Calsiam Tablet 15's may pass into the breast milk, hence breastfeeding mothers need to seek medical advice before starting Calsiam Tablet 15's. Do not take Calsiam Tablet 15's if you have hypercalcemia (high calcium levels), hypervitaminosis D (high vitamin D levels), and malabsorption syndrome (difficulty absorbing nutrition from food). 

Uses of Calsiam Tablet 15's

Osteoporosis, Postmenopausal osteoporosis Osteomalacia, Rickets, Calcium deficiency, Hypoparathyroidism

Medicinal Benefits

Calsiam Tablet 15's is a combination of three drugs, namely; Calcium carbonate(mineral), Cholecalciferol(Vitamin D3) used to treat low blood calcium levels and various associated 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 tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels). Calcium carbonate is a mineral and prevents or treats calcium deficiency. It helps to maintain bone and teeth health. Cholecalciferol(Vitamin D3) treats calcium deficiency with hypoparathyroidism (the parathyroid glands' decreased activity) and metabolic bone diseases in people with chronic kidney failure.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Osteoporosis: It is a bone disease that weakens and brittle bones by decreasing bone density.  As bones become less dense, they weaken and are more likely to break. Breaking a bone is a serious complication of osteoporosis, especially with older patients. Women are much more likely to develop osteoporosis than are men. Sign and symptoms include back pain caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height over time, a stooped posture, a bone that breaks much more easily than expected.

    Osteomalacia/Rickets: A bone disease caused by softening and weakening bones in children due to inadequate vitamin D. Adults can experience a similar condition known as osteomalacia. It causes bone pain, poor growth, and soft, weak bones that can lead to bone deformities.

    Tetany: A disease condition due to low levels of calcium (hypocalcemia) in the body causes cramps and spasms in the hands, feet, and larynx (voice box).

    Hypoparathyroidism: It is a disease characterized by low levels of parathyroid hormone. This can cause low calcium levels and trigger tetany.
