Overview

OsteVit-D One-A-Week capsules contain cholecalciferol.

Cholecalciferol is another name for vitamin D3.

OsteVit-D One-A-Week is used, as directed by your medical practitioner or pharmacist, for (a) treatment of vitamin D deficiency in adults and adolescents and (b) for the prevention of vitamin D deficiency in high risk individuals.

Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus, for strong, healthy bones and teeth. A diet with not enough calcium can lead to osteoporosis later in life. Adequate vitamin D and calcium is needed to help build strong bones and assist in the prevention of osteoporosis. OsteVit-D One-A-Week is not a source of calcium.

It is unlikely that adequate vitamin D levels can be achieved through the diet.

The main source of vitamin D is from the sun, however deficiency is common and it should not be assumed that Australians get enough vitamin D from the sun. People who may be at risk of being deficient are the elderly (particularly those in residential care), people with skin conditions where avoidance of sunlight is advised, those with dark skin (particularly if veiled), and those with malabsorption.

How to take OsteVit-D One-A-Week

Follow all directions given to you by your pharmacist or doctor carefully. They may differ from the information contained in this leaflet.

If you do not understand the instructions on the box and leaflet, ask your pharmacist or doctor for help.

How much to take

Adults and children 12 years and over: 1 capsule once weekly as directed by your medical practitioner or pharmacist.

When to take it

Can be taken with or without food. Vitamin D is best absorbed when taken after a meal so this is the best time to take it, unless otherwise directed by your pharmacist or doctor.

Take your medicine on the same day each week. It will help you remember when to take it. It may help to mark your calendar with a reminder.

If you need to take an antacid, take it at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after your dose of OsteVit-D One-A-Week.

How long to take it

Continue taking your medicine for as long as your pharmacist or doctor tells you. The recommended dose for maintaining vitamin D levels is 1 capsule per week.

If you forget to take it

Take it as soon as you remember, and then go back to taking your medicine as you would normally.

If you are not sure what to do, ask your pharmacist or doctor.

If you have trouble remembering to take your medicine, ask your pharmacist for some hints.
