Deficiency of calcium and vitamins.
Follow all instructions on your medication label and package. Tell each of your healthcare providers about all of your medical conditions, allergies and all the medicines you use.
Normal daily intake of calcium carbonate appears to be safe and effective to use during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the use of calcium carbonate above the recommended dietary allowances should be avoided.
1. Get emergency medical attention if you have signs of an allergic reaction: urticaria; Shortness of breath; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
2. Call your doctor once if you have:
Little or no urination; Swelling, rapid weight gain; or High levels of calcium in your blood – nausea, vomiting, constipation, increased thirst or urination, muscle weakness, bone pain, confusion, lack of energy, or feeling tired.
3. Common side effects may include:
Stomach upset, gas, or Constipation.
How it works:
All genomic actions of 1,25 (OH) 2D are mediated by VDR. VDR is a transcription factor and a member of the steroid hormone nuclear receptor family. It consists of three domains: the N-terminal DNA binding domain consisting of two zinc fingers that bind the discrete sites (VDREs), the C-terminal ligand-binding domain, and the hinge region together with two domains. The ligand-binding domain structure has been solved by X-ray crystallography (Rochelle et al., 2000). It consists of 12 helices. The terminal helix acts as a gating mechanism around the ligand involved and forms an interface for coactivators as well as facilitating the interaction of the VDR with its heterodimer partner, typically the RXR. Although there is substantial variability in the sequence of VDREs, the majority of those with the highest affinity for VDRs are direct repeats of hexanucleotides with a difference of 3 nt between half-sites, a motif known as as DR3. VDR binding to its VDRE then recruits coregulatory complexes required for its genomic activity. These complexes can be both gene and cell-specific, enabling selectivity of 1,25 (OH) 2D action from cell type to cell type.
Calcium can make it harder for your body to absorb certain medications. If you take other medicines, take them at least 2 hours before or 4 or 6 hours after taking calcium carbonate.
Other drugs may interact with calcium carbonate, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your doctor about all your current medications and any medications that you start or stop using.
Drug interactions can change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription / nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine without your doctor’s approval.
How to store it:
Conditions for safe storage: Store in a cool, dry area. Store materials are tightly sealed in properly labeled containers. Protect from moisture.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up for the missed dose.
High calcium levels in urine.
Low phosphate levels.
High calcium levels.
Suspected dioxin poisoning.
Skip the missed dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up for the missed dose.
