Patienteninformation

Calcitriol Salmon Pharma

Salmon Pharma GmbH

Was ist Calcitriol Salmon Pharma und wann wird es angewendet?

Auf Verschreibung des Arztes oder der Ärztin.

Der Wirkstoff von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma ist synthetisch gewonnenes Calcitriol, ein

hochwirksames natürliches Stoffwechselprodukt von Vitamin D. Calcitriol fördert die Aufnahme von

Kalzium aus der Nahrung und ist an der Regulierung des Knochenaufbaus beteiligt. Deshalb eignet

sich Calcitriol Salmon Pharma ebenfalls zur Behandlung der postmenopausalen Osteoporose

(Verminderung der Knochenmasse).

Bei Patientinnen und Patienten mit eingeschränkter Nierenfunktion ist die Bildung von Calcitriol im

Organismus vermindert bis aufgehoben. Dieser Mangel spielt bei der Entstehung von krankhaften

Knochenveränderungen, wie sie im Gefolge schwerer Nierenerkrankungen und Dialysebehandlung

auftreten können, eine entscheidende Rolle. Durch Einnahme von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma können

derartige Folgeschäden vermieden werden.

Calcitriol Salmon Pharma wirkt auch den Störungen des Mineralstoffwechsels entgegen, die im

Gefolge einer Unterfunktion der Nebenschilddrüsen auftreten können.

Die Behandlung mit Calcitriol Salmon Pharma hat sich auch bei verschiedenen Formen der als

Rachitis bekannten Störungen des Knochenaufbaus, der sogenannten Englischen Krankheit, als

nützlich erwiesen.

Was sollte dazu beachtet werden?

Die Wirkung von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma ist sehr eng mit der Ernährung, insbesondere mit ihrem

Gehalt an Kalzium verknüpft. Sie müssen deshalb eine vom Arzt oder von der Ärztin

vorgeschriebene Diät gewissenhaft einhalten und Sie dürfen nur vom Arzt oder von der Ärztin

empfohlene Kalziumpräparate einnehmen.

Wann darf Calcitriol Salmon Pharma nicht eingenommen/angewendet werden?

Wenn Sie gegenüber Calcitriol Salmon Pharma oder den darin enthaltenen Stoffen (siehe «Was ist in

Calcitriol Salmon Pharma enthalten?») überempfindlich sind, dürfen Sie Calcitriol Salmon Pharma

nicht einnehmen. Bei Erkrankungen, die mit einer abnormalen Erhöhung des Kalziumgehalts im Blut

einhergehen, darf Calcitriol Salmon Pharma ebenfalls nicht eingenommen werden.

Wann ist bei der Einnahme/Anwendung von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma Vorsicht geboten?

Da der Wirkstoff von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma, Calcitriol, das wirksamste Stoffwechselprodukt von

Vitamin D ist, dürfen Sie während der Behandlung mit Calcitriol Salmon Pharma keine sonstigen

Vitamin-D-Präparate (z.B. Lebertran) einnehmen. Wenn sich bei Ihnen Zeichen eines überhöhten

Kalziumgehalts im Blut einstellen – gekennzeichnet durch vermehrte Harnausscheidung,

Austrocknung, unstillbaren Durst, Appetitverlust, Gewichtsabnahme, Wachstumshemmung, Übelkeit

und Erbrechen, Schwindel, Verstopfung mit schmerzhaften Blähungen und Muskelschwäche,

Kopfschmerzen, Teilnahmslosigkeit, Koma, Depression, Empfindungsstörungen, niedrigen

Blutdruck, Fieber, Durstgefühl, Harnwegsinfektionen – müssen Sie die Einnahme von Calcitriol

Salmon Pharma unterbrechen und Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin benachrichtigen; sie sind ebenfalls zu

informieren, wenn Sie während der Behandlung Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen (Juckreiz,

Hautausschlag, Nesselfieber, Hautrötungen) bei Ihnen feststellen.

Wenn Sie schon einmal Nierensteine hatten oder an Herzerkrankungen leiden, sollten Sie dies Ihrem

Arzt oder Ihrer Ärztin mitteilen.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie an anderen

Krankheiten leiden, Allergien haben oder andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte!) einnehmen oder

äusserlich anwenden!

Darf Calcitriol Salmon Pharma während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit

eingenommen/angewendet werden?

Wenn Sie schwanger sind oder es werden möchten, dürfen Sie Calcitriol Salmon Pharma

ausschliesslich nach Rücksprache mit dem Arzt oder der Ärztin einnehmen.

Da Calcitriol in die Muttermilch übertreten kann, wird der Arzt bzw. die Ärztin Calcitriol Salmon

Pharma unter besonders sorgfältiger Kontrolle nur verschreiben, wenn es unbedingt nötig ist.

Wie verwenden Sie Calcitriol Salmon Pharma?

Wegen der raschen Wirksamkeit von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma ist es ausserordentlich wichtig, dass

Sie sich ganz genau an die vom Arzt oder der Ärztin vorgeschriebene Dosierung sowie an seine

Ernährungsanweisungen halten. Da die Dosierung je nach der zugrundeliegenden Krankheit und dem

Ansprechen jedes einzelnen Patienten oder jeder einzelnen Patientin sehr unterschiedlich sein kann,

können hier keine allgemein gültigen Empfehlungen gegeben werden. Auf keinen Fall dürfen Sie die

vom Arzt oder von der Ärztin vorgeschriebene Dosierung von sich aus erhöhen oder eine versäumte

Einnahme durch eine erhöhte Folgedosis auszugleichen versuchen.

Nehmen Sie die vorgeschriebene Anzahl Kapseln unzerkaut ein und trinken Sie ein Glas Flüssigkeit

nach.

Auch bei Säuglingen und Kleinkindern sollten Sie sich exakt an die vom Arzt oder von der Ärztin

verordnete Dosierung halten. Für Kinder bis zu 2 Jahren liegt die Anfangsdosis zwischen 0,01 und

0,1 µg/kg/Tag. Die Behandlungsdauer richtet sich nach der zugrundeliegenden Krankheit; unter

Umständen ist sie unbefristet.

Ändern Sie nicht von sich aus die verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben, das Arzneimittel

wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. mit Ihrer

Ärztin oder Apothekerin.

Welche Nebenwirkungen kann Calcitriol Salmon Pharma haben?

Folgende unerwünschte Wirkungen können bei der Einnahme von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma

auftreten:

Der in Calcitriol Salmon Pharma enthaltene Wirkstoff entspricht dem als natürliches

Stoffwechselprodukt auftretenden Calcitriol. Sofern die Dosis den Bedarf nicht überschreitet, führt

Calcitriol somit zu keinen unerwünschten Nebenerscheinungen. Bei Überdosierung kann es jedoch

zu einer unter Umständen bedrohlichen Überhöhung des Kalziumgehalts im Blut kommen. Wie sich

eine solche Überhöhung des Kalziumgehalts im Blut äussert, ist im Abschnitt «Wann ist bei der

Einnahme/Anwendung von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma Vorsicht geboten?» beschrieben.

Wenn eine geringfügige Überhöhung des Kalziumgehalts im Blut über längere Zeit besteht, kann es

zu Kalkablagerungen in den Weichteilen kommen.

Wenn Sie unerwünschte Wirkungen resp. Symptome bemerken, die hier oder unter dem Abschnitt

«Wann ist bei der Einnahme/Anwendung von Calcitriol Salmon Pharma Vorsicht geboten?» nicht

beschrieben sind, sollten Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin

informieren.

Was ist ferner zu beachten?

Calcitriol Salmon Pharma muss in der Originalpackung, vor Licht geschützt, und ausserhalb der

Reichweite von Kindern aufbewahrt werden.

Bei Raumtemperatur (15–25 °C) aufbewahren.

Das Arzneimittel darf nur bis zu dem auf dem Behälter mit «EXP» bezeichneten Datum verwendet

werden.

Nach Therapieabschluss oder Verfall sind nicht verwendete Arzneimittel in der Originalpackung der

Abgabestelle (Arzt oder Apotheker) zur fachgerechten Entsorgung zu retournieren.

Weitere Auskünfte erteilt Ihnen Ihr Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin. Diese

Personen verfügen über die ausführliche Fachinformation.
