Indication

Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) belongs to the group of medications called vitamin D3 metabolites. Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) is a form of vitamin D that is active in the body. It helps to maintain the balance of calcium and phosphorus in the blood. It also helps bones absorb calcium.

Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) is used to help increase the amount of calcium in the blood and help with proper bone formation for people with chronic kidney failure that are undergoing dialysis. It is also used to increase the amount of calcium in the blood for people whose parathyroid glands are not working effectively, such as after surgery. Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) may also be used to treat vitamin D-resistant rickets, a bone disease caused by too little vitamin D.

Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Rocaltrol (Calcitriol), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) without consulting your doctor.
