About Vidacal D Tablet

Vidacal D Tablet belongs to the class of 'nutritional supplements', primarily used to treat low blood calcium levels. Vidacal D Tablet effectively treats various conditions caused by low calcium levels in the body like Vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), hypoparathyroidism (a condition in which parathyroid glands make low levels of calcium in the body), latent tetany (a muscle disease with low blood calcium levels), and rickets or osteomalacia (softening or deforming of bones due to lack of calcium). 

Vidacal D Tablet consists of two drugs: Calcium orotate (mineral) and Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). Calcium orotate is a mineral used to prevent or treat calcium deficiency. It provides essential nutrients necessary for bone formation and maintenance. Vitamin D3 helps maintain blood calcium and phosphorus levels and mineralization of bone. It aids in calcium absorption enabling bone growth and repair. It further prevents cartilage degeneration.

Use Vidacal D Tablet as directed by your doctor. Vidacal D Tablet is likely safe to use. In some cases, it may cause common side effects like constipation and stomach upset. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, you are advised to talk to a doctor if the side effects persist or worsen.
