V.D 3 Injection 1ml


Overview

Introduction

V.D 3 Injection 1ml helps your body to absorb a mineral called calcium, which is important for maintaining strong bones. This medicine is used if your diet does not provide enough vitamin D and may be used to treat certain bone conditions such as thinning of the bones (osteoporosis).

V.D 3 Injection 1ml is given under the supervision of a healthcare professional and should not be self-administered. You should take it regularly to get the most benefit from it. 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.

It may cause pain, redness, and swelling at the site of injection in some people. 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 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 V.D 3 Injection 1ml you may need extra blood tests and possibly X-rays.
