Patienteninformation

Vita D3 protect

Streuli Pharma AG

Was ist Vita D3 und wann wird es angewendet?

Vita D3 ist eine ölige Lösung mit Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). Vitamin D3 kann der Mensch

normalerweise selbst unter dem Einfluss des Sonnenlichts in der Haut herstellen.

Vitamin D3 ist für die Calcium-Aufnahme aus der Nahrung notwendig und unentbehrlich für eine

normale Knochenbildung.

Bei ungenügender Sonnenbestrahlung, ungenügender Zufuhr von Vitamin D3-angereicherten

Lebensmitteln sowie bei vermehrtem Bedarf an Vitamin D3 im Wachstum, Schwangerschaft und

Stillzeit, muss dem Körper zusätzlich dieses Vitamin angeboten werden.

Vita D3 wird bei folgenden Erkrankungen eingesetzt:

·Vorbeugung von Knochenerweichung beim Kind (Rachitis);

·Vorbeugung von Knochenerweichung beim Erwachsenen (Osteomalazie);

·Vorbeugende Gaben: starke Wachstumsphasen, Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit.

Wann darf Vita D3 nicht angewendet werden?

·Nehmen Sie nur die von Ihrem Arzt bzw. von Ihrer Ärztin verschriebene Dosis in der vorgegebenen

Zeitdauer ein.

·Vermeiden Sie die Einnahme überhöhter Vitamin D-Dosen über Monate oder Jahre insbesondere

bei gleichzeitiger Einnahme von Calcium und/oder vitaminisierten Nährmitteln (z.B.

Schoppenpräparate).

·Vitamin D-Präparate dürfen bei Zuständen mit erhöhtem Calciumgehalt im Blut oder Urin sowie bei

Ausscheidungsstörungen der Niere nicht angewandt werden.

Wann ist bei der Einnahme von Vita D3 Vorsicht geboten?

Alle D-Vitamine sind schädlich, wenn sie in zu hohen Dosen eingenommen werden (mehr als 1000-

3000 l.E. pro kg Körpergewicht).

Bei Störungen des Calciumstoffwechsels, bei Nierenerkrankungen und bei Herzkrankheiten ist

besondere Vorsicht geboten. In diesen Fällen ist Ihr Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin zu konsultieren.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt, Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. Ihre Ärztin, Apothekerin oder Drogistin,

wenn Sie an anderen Krankheiten leiden, Allergien haben oder andere Arzneimittel (auch selbst

gekaufte!) einnehmen oder äusserlich anwenden!

Darf Vita D3 während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen werden?

Auf Grund der bisherigen Erfahrung ist bei bestimmungsgemässer Anwendung kein Risiko für das

Kind bekannt. Systematische wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen wurden aber nie durchgeführt.

Vorsichtshalber sollten Sie während der Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit möglichst auf Arzneimittel

verzichten oder den Arzt, den Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. die Ärztin, die Apothekerin oder

Drogistin um Rat fragen.

Wie verwenden Sie Vita D3?
