INTRODUCTION

CALVOX TABLET contains Calcium carbonate and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) which belongs to the group of medicines called Calcium supplements and Vitamin derivatives respectively. It is used to prevent and treat calcium deficiency (low levels of calcium in blood).  

Low levels of calcium are associated with poor dietary intake of calcium, mainly seen during pregnancy and lactation. CALVOX TABLET is also used for the treatment of osteoporosis (bones become brittle and fragile), osteomalacia (softening of bones), rickets (abnormal calcification, softening and distortion of the bones typically resulting in bowlegs) and hypoparathyroidism (low levels of parathyroid hormones).   

Patients undergoing treatment with CALVOX TABLET will be asked to monitor their plasma levels of calcium frequently to avoid hypercalcemia (increased calcium levels).   

CALVOX TABLET can be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding only if advised by the doctor. However, consult your doctor before taking to understand required dosages that helps to prevent hypercalcemia and reduce the harm of the baby.  

CALVOX TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with hypervitaminosis D (increased levels of vitamin D in blood), kidney stones, diseases that increases calcium levels in blood and urine (Ex. hyperparathyroidism).     

CALVOX TABLET should be taken with caution in patients with sarcoidosis (growth of tiny collection of inflammatory cells or granulomas in any part of the body), immobilised patients with osteoporosis (brittle bones), malignancies (abnormal growth of cells) and impaired renal function.   

The most common side effects of taking CALVOX TABLET includes nausea, vomiting, constipation, excess gas, dry mouth, loss of hunger and acid refluxes. Consult your doctor if any of the side effects worsen.

USES OF CALVOX TABLET

Used to prevent and treat:

  • low levels of calcium in blood (mainly occurs during pregnancy and lactation period)

HOW CALVOX TABLET WORKS

CALVOX TABLET contains vitamin D3 and calcium carbonate. Vitamin D3 helps to enhance the intestinal absorption of calcium. Calcium carbonate acts as a calcium supplement.

This helps to strengthen the bones, teeth and muscle functions.
