Use in Special Groups

Use in pregnancy: There is no evidence to suggest that vitamin D3 is teratogenic in humans even at very high doses. Colecalciferol should be used during pregnancy only if the benefits outweigh the potential risk to the fetus.

Use in nursing mothers: It should be assumed that exogenous Colecalciferol passes into the breast milk. In view of the potential for hypercalcaemia in the mother and for adverse reactions from Colecalciferol in nursing infants, mothers may breastfeed while taking Colecalciferol, provided that the serum Calcium levels of the mother and infant are monitored.












Precautions

People with the following conditions should exercise with caution when considering taking vitamin D3 supplements:

•High blood calcium or phosphorus level

•Heart problems

•Kidney disease
