Classe pharmacothérapeutique

Si vous souffrez de la maladie de Paget et que vous ne pouvez pas prendre d’autres traitements pour cette maladie, par

exemple si vous avez des problèmes rénaux importants. La maladie de Paget est une maladie qui évolue lentement et qui

Si vous avez un taux élevé de calcium dans le sang (hypercalcémie) dû à un cancer.

Ce médicament est réservé à l’adulte de 18 ans et plus.

Contre-indications

N’utilisez jamais CALSYN 50 U.I./0,5 ml, solution injectable :

Si vous êtes allergique à la substance active (la calcitonine de saumon) ou à l’un des autres composants contenus dans

CALSYN. Vous trouverez la liste des composants à la rubrique 6.

Si vous souffrez d’un taux bas de calcium dans le sang (hypocalcémie).

Précautions d'emploi ; mises en garde spéciales

Mises en garde et précautions d’emploi

La calcitonine de saumon peut provoquer des réactions allergiques.

Notamment, des difficultés respiratoires (bronchospasme), un gonflement de la langue et de la gorge, des cas isolés

de choc anaphylactique (réaction allergique grave mettant le patient en danger avec malaise brutal et baisse importante de

la tension artérielle, pouvant être précédée d’une éruption de boutons, de démangeaisons, de rougeurs sur la peau, d’une

difficulté à respirer, d’un gonflement du visage et/ou du cou) ont été observés.

Ne confondez pas ces réactions allergiques avec des bouffées de chaleur (rougeur du visage ou du haut du corps). Elles

sont fréquentes avec la calcitonine mais ne sont pas causées par une réaction allergique.

Si votre médecin pense que vous êtes sensible à la calcitonine, il réalisera des tests cutanés avant de débuter le traitement

par la calcitonine.

Prévenez votre médecin en cas d’antécédents de cancer. Des essais cliniques conduits chez des patients ayant de

l’arthrose ou de l’ostéoporose ont montré qu’un traitement au long cours par calcitonine entraîne une augmentation du risque

de cancer. Votre médecin décidera si la calcitonine est un traitement adapté et pendant combien de temps vous pourriez être

traité.

Interactions avec d'autres médicaments

Autres médicaments et CALSYN 50 U.I./0,5 ml, solution injectable en ampoule

être en adapter la dose.

Si vous prenez d’autres médicaments qui diminuent le taux de calcium dans le sang (tels que des bisphosphonates

contre l’ostéoporose). La quantité de calcium dans votre sang pourrait baisser excessivement.

Si vous prenez du lithium.

Informez votre médecin ou pharmacien si vous utilisez, avez récemment utilisé ou pourriez utiliser tout autre médicament.
