Cholecalciferol is contraindicated in all diseases associated with hypercalcaemia. It is also contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to Cholecalciferol (or medicines of the same class) and any of the constituent excipients. Cholecalciferol is contraindicated if there is evidence of vitamin D toxicity.
People with the following conditions should exercise with caution when considering taking vitamin D3 supplements:
- High blood calcium or phosphorus level
- Heart problems
- Kidney disease
Vitamin D3 must be taken with adequate amounts of both calcium and magnesium supplementation.
Generally all nutritional supplements are considered to be safe and well tolerable. However, few side-effects can generally occur including hypercalcaemia syndrome or calcium intoxication (depending on the severity and duration of hypercalcaemia), occasional acute symptoms include anorexia, headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or stomach ache and constipation with the administration of Cholecalciferol.
Use in special groups: Use in pregnancy: There is no evidence to suggest that vitamin D3 is teratogenic in humans even at very high doses. Cholecalciferol should be used during pregnancy only if the benefits outweigh the potential risk to the fetus.
Use in nursing mothers: It should be assumed that exogenous Cholecalciferol passes into the breast milk. In view of the potential for hypercalcaemia in the mother and for adverse reactions from Cholecalciferol in nursing infants, mothers may breastfeed while taking Cholecalciferol, provided that the serum Calcium levels of the mother and infant are monitored.
