ROCALTROL ORAL SOLUTION (CALCITRIOL)

Rocaltrol Oral Solution Description

Rocaltrol Oral Solution is a man-made form of vitamin D prescribed for people that have kidney disease or their parathyroid glands are not working properly, in order to treat or prevent blood calcium levels from dropping too low. If your kidneys are impaired they are unable to convert the vitamin D that you get from exposure to sunshine or the foods you eat into the active form that your body can utilize so calcium levels decline. As this occurs, your parathyroid glands try to compensate for the loss of calcium and become overworked. This is called hyperparathyroidism.

Rocaltrol Oral Solution Manages Calcium and Phosphate Blood Levels

Rocaltrol Oral Solution or generic Calcitriol is an active form of vitamin D that will circulate as a hormone in your blood and control the concentration of calcium and phosphate in your bloodstream. Calcium and phosphorous are essential to your body for building and repairing bones and teeth, muscle contractions, and proper nerve function. Your doctor may also recommend other medications to help ensure your body is receiving everything it needs and you will be required to follow specific diet recommendations. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Rocaltrol Oral Solution

Secondary hyperparathyroidism indicates that there is an underlying condition, most likely chronic kidney failure that is causing your calcium levels to be low. Treatment starts with bringing your parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels back to normal by taking Rocaltrol Oral Solution if you have severe vitamin D deficiency or calcium and vitamin D for those with chronic kidney failure. Regular blood and/or urine testing will be done to monitor the levels of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate in your blood.

Before You Take Rocaltrol Oral Solution

Your doctor can advise regarding the safety of taking Rocaltrol Oral Solution if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, so it can be determined if Rocaltrol Oral Solution is right for you.

Rocaltrol Oral Solution Precautions

Do not start or stop taking any new or current medications without talking to your doctor as this could affect how Rocaltrol Oral Solution will work in your body. You will need to follow instructions regarding what foods are best for receiving the right amount of calcium or you may need to eat a diet low in phosphate.
