Information about Sandocal 500mg 10pcs

Calcium Carbonate 250 mg or 500 mg: This is used for the treatment or prevention of calcium depletion in patients in whom dietary measures are inadequate. Conditions that may be associated with calcium deficiency include hypoparathyroidism, achlorhydria, chronic diarrhea, vitamin D deficiency, steatorrhea, sprue, pregnancy and lactation, menopause, pancreatitis, renal failure, alkalosis, and hyperphosphataemia. Calcium Carbonate is being used increasingly often to treat hyperphosphataemia in chronic renal failure as well as those on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and haemodialysis. 

Many patients are unable to tolerate sufficient doses for complete phosphate control and require additional measures such as stringent dietary phosphate restriction or relatively small doses of aluminium hydroxide. Calcium Carbonate containing preparations can provide short-term relief of dyspeptic systems but are no longer recommended for long-term treatment of peptic ulceration.
 

Dosage: Children: 500 mg daily

Adolescents: 500 mg to 1000 mg daily
Adults and elderly: 1000 mg daily or as directed by the physician.
 

  • Dietary deficiency- 1000 mg to 1500 mg daily.
  • As Phosphate binder- Dose as required by the individual patient depending on serum calcium and phosphate levels.
  • Adjunct to osteoporosis therapy- 1000 mg to 1500 mg daily.

Side effects: Mild gastrointestinal disturbances (e.g., flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation) may occur. Hypercalcaemia and alkalosis are rarely produced with large doses.

Orally administered Calcium Carbonate may be irritating to the GI tract. It may also cause constipation. Hypercalcemia is rarely produced by administration of calcium alone, but may occur when large doses are given to patients with chronic renal failure.
