2. Before you take Aristocal® D
- Do not take this medicine and tell your doctor if:
Aristocal® D is contraindicated in patients who have known hypersensitivity to any of the components of this preparation.
- Taking other medicines
Concurrent administration of Thiazide diuretics may increase the risk of hypercalcemia. Bran decreases the gastro-intestinal absorption of calcium, and may therefore decrease the efficacy of calcium supplements. Calcium salts reduce the absorption of a number of other drugs such as Biphosphonates, Fluoride, some Fluoroquinolones and Tetracyclines.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Aristocal® D should be used considering the risk benefit ratio.
