Calcium carbonate Tablet
Osteoporosis has
been called a silent
thief because it can
develop without
any symptom.
Globally an
osteoporotic
fracture occurs
every 3 seconds.
One in 3 women
and one in 5 men
over 50 years of
age will suffer
from osteoporotic
fracture (International
Osteoporosis Foundation,
2014).

Abbreviated Prescribing Information
Composition: each tablet contains calcium carbonate USP equivalent to 500 mg elemental Calcium. Therapeutic
indication: 1. raised calcium requirement, e.g. during pregnancy and lactation and in children and adolescents at times of
rapid growth. 2. inadequate intake of calcium in the diet due to malnutrition. 3. prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
4. disorders of osteogenesis. Dosage and administration: for adult one tablet (500 mg elemental calcium) daily or as
directed by the physician. For children 250 mg elemental calcium daily or as directed by the physician. For adolescents
250-500 mg elemental calcium daily or as directed by the physician. Contraindication: hypersensitivity to the calcium
carbonate or any inactive ingredient of the medication. Hypercalcaemia (e.g. in hyperparathyroidism, demineralizing
tumours such as plasmacytomas and bone metastases). Severe hypercalciuria. Severe renal insufficiency. Pregnancy and
Lactation: During pregnancy and lactation treatment should always be under the direction of a physician. During
pregnancy and lactation, requirements for calcium and vitamin D are increased but in deciding on the required
supplementation allowances should be made for availability of these agents from other sources. Side effects: flatulence,
diarrhea or constipation in rare cases. Drug interaction: oral calcium can reduce the eternal absorption of tetracycline and
oral fluoride preparations. An interval of at least 3 hours should therefore be allowed between ingestion of these
medications. Vitamin D increases enteral absorption of calcium. The intestinal uptake of calcium from the tablet may be
reduced by concomitant ingestion of certain foods (e.g. spinach, rhubarb, bran, and other cereal products, milk and milk
products). At high doses and in combination with vitamin D, calcium may decrease the response of verapamil and
possibly to other calcium antagonists. In digitalized patients, high doses of calcium may increase the risk of cardiac
arrhythmias (ACI Limited, 2014).
