Alfacalcidol is a medical product that belongs to the wide class of vitamin D products. Alfacalcidol is generally indicated as a dietary supplement.
Alfacalcidol is a popular medication that is widely employed in the therapy of those medical conditions that trigger disturbances in the normal metabolism of calcium. This can be due to an abnormal 1?-hydroxylation (a condition associated with reduced renal functions), malabsorption of calcium (like in osteoporosis), vitamin D resistance, and so on. This is why patients who are suffering from any of the following medical conditions are known to benefit from a treatment trial with Alfacalcidol:
- Neonatal hypocalcaemia;
- Primary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism (if it is associated with bone disease);
- Renal bone disease (a disorder also commonly called renal osteodystrophy);
- Rickets and osteomalacia;
Alfacalcidol must not be indicated to a patient who has been diagnosed with hypercalcemia, hypermagnesemia, and / or hyperphosphatemia (except those clinical cases in which the patient's abnormally low level of phosphorus are associated with Hypoparathyroidism). Furthermore, individuals who are suffering from known Allergic Reaction to Alfacalcidol (hypersensitivity to alfacalcidol or to any of its ingredients) must not be allowed to start a therapy with Alfacalcidol. Some exceptions can be made, especially if a specialist assesses that the individual's treatment trial with Alfacalcidol is of great significance for his survival chances. In such conditions, the individual will have to remain hospitalized, under strict clinical supervision, in order to allow a set of trained health care providers to offer him or her emergency clinical care. Before you start a treatment with Alfacalcidol, your personal health care provider will give you a list with the ingredients of Alfacalcidol. You should read that list with great attention and inform your personal health care provider if you know to suffer from any Allergic Reaction to any of the components listed there. If you are not sure whether you are allergic or not to at least one of them, you should undergo a set of allergy tests in order to clear any doubts. Only after these steps are completed will your personal doctor be able to prescribe you a therapy with Alfacalcidol.
Although animal studies have been performed (and they have shown that a therapy with Alfacalcidol during pregnancy does not put the fetus' life and / or development in danger), their results cannot be considered reliable as to start prescribing Alfacalcidol to pregnant females. If you are pregnant and you want to start a therapy with Alfacalcidol, we strongly advise you to seek the professional advice of your physician.
It is thought that nursing mothers who are following a therapy with Alfacalcidol present increased levels of vitamin D in their milk. This might interfere with the normal metabolism of calcium in a nursing baby. This is why we strongly recommend nursing mothers who want to start benefiting from a treatment trial with Alfacalcidol to discontinue breast-feeding their infants during therapy.
It is each individual's own responsibility to read with great attention the product's label before they use the first dose of Alfacalcidol. If you feel that you are not completely comfortable with the set of instructions that the drug's label provided you with or if you simply want to know more about your future treatment trial with this dietary supplement, we strongly suggest you to ask for the professional guidance of your personal doctor. Other medical trainees should also be able to provide you with the details that you need. This is why it is also a viable option to address your questions about Alfacalcidol to a nurse or to your local pharmacist.
During your therapy with Alfacalcidol, your physician might want to gradually change your initial dose of Alfacalcidol. This will depend on how your organism responds to the therapy and on a series of other factors.
Children who weigh less than 20 kg should not be administered a therapy with Alfacalcidol (dietary supplement). In order to achieve the correct dose of this product we advise you to refer to your personal health care specialist. He will calculate your dose depending on your body weight, your plasma calcium levels, and so on. Most adult patients effectively respond to a therapy of 3 mcg/day of Alfacalcidol.
Patients who present over dosage with Alpha D-3 might experience: malaise, weakness, fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, headache, constipation, dry mouth, heartburn, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle pain, abdominal pain, joint pain, bone pain, and so on. In case you experience any of these, you should refer to your personal physician at once.
A disruption in the patient's usual Alfacalcidol dosing schedule is not a matter of extreme severity. In such cases you should simply use a dose of this medication as soon as you regain your access to the drug.
The usual adverse reactions that a prolonged therapy with Alfacalcidol can trigger are related to hypercalcemia and hyperphosphatemia. Ask your personal health care provider for further instructions regarding this matter. If you develop any unusual signs (of moderate, mild, or severe intensity), we strongly advise you to contact your personal health care provider. Dosage adjustments might be in order.
Ask for your physician's permission to start a therapy with any other medicine during your treatment with Alfacalcidol.
