  • Treat postmenopausal osteoporosis

HOW CALCITOMIN SPRAY WORKS

CALCITOMIN SPRAY stops the action of certain bone cells (such as osteoclasts) that destroys the bone mass. This action prevents bone loss and helps in building bone mass and density. As a result, it makes your bones stronger and reduces the risk of fracture.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Use CALCITOMIN SPRAY as advised by your physician. It is for intranasal use only. Prior to the use, prime the device by pressing 2-3 puffs in the air. Place the nozzle of the device inside your nostril and gently press the pump to release the spray.

As CALCITOMIN SPRAY must be stored in the refrigerator, allow it to come to room temperature before use.

Your doctor will decide the suitable dose, the number of sprays and duration of therapy for you depending on your age, body weight and health condition. Do not stop using CALCITOMIN SPRAY without consulting your doctor.
