To prevent and treat vitamin D deficiency in adults and teenagers, and vitamin D dependent rickets. It can be used with other medicines to treat bone disorder (osteoporosis), low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders (hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, familial hypophosphatemia). It may also be used in kidney disease to keep calcium levels normal and allow normal bone growth. Cholecalciferol drops are given to breast-fed infants as a supplement.

DRUG INTERACTION

Taking cholecalciferol with thiazide diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide) increases the risk of high levels of blood calcium. Cholecalciferol if taken along with systemic corticosteroids may reduce calcium absorption. Cholecalciferol may also interact with cholestyramine, rifampicin, phenytoin or barbiturates, laxatives which contain paraffin oil, glucocorticoids, and cardiac glycosides (digoxin). Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Cholecalciferol is important for the absorption of calcium from the stomach and for the functioning of calcium in the body. It regulates the blood levels of calcium and phosphorus and also plays key role in the absorption of calcium in bone tissue.
