Warning & Precautions
In the presence of mild hypercalciuria excretion levels must be carefully monitored and where necessary the dose of Caljuven tablets be reduced or treatment should be stopped. Patients with a history of stone formation should also be recommended to increase their fluid intake. High doses of vitamin D should be avoided during Calcium therapy unless specifically indicated.
In rare cases flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation.
Calcium can reduce the absorption of tetracycline and fluoride preparations, and an interval of at least 3 hours should therefore be allowed between ingestion of these medications. Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium. The intestinal uptake of calcium from Caljuven tablets may be reduced by concomitant ingestion of certain foods (e.g. spinach, rhubarb, bran, and other cereal products, milk and milk products). At high doses and in combination with vitamin D, calcium may decrease the response to verapamil and possibly to other calcium antagonists. In digitalized patients, high doses of calcium may increase the risk of cardiac arrhythmias.
Caljuven Tablet: Each box contains 50's tablets in blister pack.
