Each capsule of Fultium-D3 contains colecalciferol 800IU, which is equivalent to 20 microgram vitamin D3.
For patients with serum vitamin D levels <25nmol/l, the recommended dose is 1–4 capsules daily for up to 12 weeks.
For the prevention of vitamin D deficiency (including adults and the elderly with serum levels 25–50nmol/l and for long-term maintenance therapy), patients should take 1 or 2 capsules daily.
As an adjunct to specific therapy for osteoporosis, 1 capsule daily is appropriate.
Fultium-D3 is not recommended in children under 12 years of age and is contraindicated in patients with peanut or soya allergy.
