Calcium containing drugs are used widely in pregnancy by way of oral calcium supplementation. Calcium Carbonate can be used in lactating women too.
In the presence of mild hypercalciuria, excretion levels must be carefully monitored and where necessary the dose of calcium carbonate should be reduced or treatment should be stopped. Patients with a history of stone formation should also be recommended to increase their fluid intake. High dosage of vitamin D should be avoided during Calcium therapy unless specifically indicated.
Store in a cool, dry place in controlled room temperature.
