Calcitriol

Calcitriol is a form of vitamin D, specifically Vitamin D3, that plays a crucial role in the regulation of calcium and phosphate in your body. It belongs to a class of drugs known as vitamin D analogs.

The primary purpose of calcitriol is to treat conditions caused by low levels of calcium in the blood. These conditions include certain types of bone disease, low blood calcium levels in people who are on chronic kidney dialysis, and hypoparathyroidism, a condition where the body produces insufficient amounts of parathyroid hormone.

Calcitriol works by helping your body absorb more calcium from your diet. This is vital because calcium is a key component for the health and strength of your bones. It’s also important for other bodily functions, such as nerve and muscle function.

Calcitriol comes in various forms, including capsules, tablets, an oral liquid solution, injections, and a topical form.

Oral and injectable forms such as Rocaltrol and Calcijex are the most commonly used for treating low calcium conditions caused by low levels of calcium in the blood. These conditions include certain types of bone disease, low blood calcium levels in people who are on chronic kidney dialysis, and hypoparathyroidism, a condition where the body produces insufficient amounts of parathyroid hormone.

Calcitriol works by helping your body absorb more calcium from your diet. This is vital because calcium is a key component for the health and strength of your bones. It’s also important for other bodily functions, such as nerve and muscle function.

Oral calcitriol is usually taken once a day or once every other day in the morning with or without food. Injections are usually given by a healthcare professional.

Topical forms, such as Vectical are used to treat psoriasis, a chronic skin condition characterized by red, scaly patches on the skin.

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells, leading to the buildup of cells on the skin’s surface. Calcitriol in Vectical helps regulate the growth and development of these skin cells.

Topical calcitriol is typically applied to the affected skin areas twice daily, or as directed by a healthcare professional. It’s important to apply the ointment only on the psoriasis patches and avoid healthy skin, as well as sensitive areas like the face, eyes, and groin.

Whatever the form, calcitriol should be used as directed by your doctor. It’s important to follow the dosage and frequency recommended by your healthcare provider!

In the United States, Calcitriol is available under the following brand names:

  • Rocaltrol
  • Calcijex
  • Vectical
