Indications and Usage: Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers are indicated, in addition to diet, to help satisfy the distinctive nutritional requirements of individuals under the supervision of a physician for the treatment of calcium deficiency, skeletal weakness and osteoporosis. Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers supplementation may be beneficial to individuals who have an insufficient dietary intake of the nutrients contained therein. Calcium and vitamin D supplementation may be useful in both preventing and treating osteoporosis. Vitamin D supplementation may be beneficial to those who are institutionalized and/or have reduced exposure to sunlight. Folic acid, vitamin B 6, and vitamin B 12, may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering blood levels of homocysteine. If dietary intake of calcium is inadequate, patients currently taking bisphosphonates for treatment of osteoporosis should be instructed to take calcium and vitamin D daily (Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers).
Contraindications: Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers are contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any of its components. Calcium and vitamin D supplementation is contraindicated in those with hypercalcemia or conditions that may lead to hypercalcemia and those who form calcium containing stones are generally advised not to take supplemental calcium. Concomitant use of iron and calcium may inhibit the absorption of iron. Concomitant use of quinolones or tetracyclines with calcium may decrease the absorption of these medications. Folic acid is contraindicated in patients with untreated and uncomplicated pernicious anemia, and in those with anaphylactic sensitivity to folic acid. The use of folic acid doses above 1 milligram/day may precipitate or exacerbate the neurological damage of vitamin B 12 deficiency. High doses of folic acid may result in decreased serum levels of the anticonvulsant drugs; carbamazepine, fosphenytoin, phenytoin, phenobarbitol and valproic acid.
Precautions: Folic acid, especially in doses above 0.1 mg daily, may obscure pernicious anemia, in that hematologic remission may occur while neurological manifestations remain progressive.
Drug Interactions: As little as 5 mg of pyridoxine (vitamin B 6) daily can decrease the efficacy of levodopa. Therefore, Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers are not recommended for patients undergoing such therapy.
Information for Patients: Calcium-Folic Acid Plus D Chewable Wafers are medical food for use only under the direction and supervision of a licensed physician. Total intakes of greater than 2,000 mg of calcium provide no added benefit to bone health.
Pregnancy: Shall only be administered under the supervision of a physician.
Pediatric: Not recommended for pediatric use.
