I have been taking calsitriol for a week now. since I started taking it I have been having a fast heart rate, diarrhea, vomiting, a metal taste in my mouth, and bad headaches. I have also lost my appetite. Is this normal when you first start ? Will it go away ? I am taking .25mcg twice a day with 500 mg of calcium three times a day for hypoparathyroidism.
Could be the side effects of taking Calcitriol, if they are too bothersome? Please seek medical advice form the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med.
