D3-Zen 60K Soft Gelatin Capsule


Overview

Introduction of D3-Zen Soft Gelatin Capsule

D3-Zen 60K Soft Gelatin Capsule helps your body to absorb a mineral called calcium. It is important for maintaining strong bones. This medicine is used if your diet does not provide enough and may be used to treat certain bone conditions such as thinning of the bones (osteoporosis).

D3-Zen 60K Soft Gelatin Capsule should be taken as directed by your doctor. It is best taken with or after food as this helps your body absorb it and you should take it regularly to get the most benefit. If you are using it to treat osteoporosis you will be prescribed other medicines as well. This medicine may be only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes making changes to your diet and taking calcium and vitamin supplements. Learn about the foods you should eat to make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet.

D3-Zen 60K Soft Gelatin Capsule has few side effects and none are common. If you take too much you may feel weakness, muscle pain or have a metallic taste in your mouth.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have high levels of calcium in your blood or if you have any heart, kidney, or liver disease. Some other medicines can decrease the absorption of vitamin D3 so let your doctor know all other medicines you are taking to make sure you are safe. This medicine may help during pregnancy when your body needs more vitamin D but too much could harm your baby. While using this medicine you may have extra blood tests and possibly X-rays.
