What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking cholecalciferol?
You should not use cholecalciferol if you have ever had an allergic reaction to vitamin D, or if you have:
· high levels of calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia);
· high levels of vitamin D in your body (hypervitaminosis D); or
· any condition that makes it hard for your body to absorb nutrients from food (malabsorption).
To make sure you can safely take cholecalciferol , tell your doctor if you have any of these other conditions:
· heart disease;
· kidney disease; or
· an electrolyte imbalance.
Your cholecalciferol dose needs may change if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment, or if you are breast-feeding a baby.
