Usage and Instructions
Adults and those aged 65+:
Take one Accrete D3 tablet twice a day (e.g. one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening) the film-coated tablet is taken within one and a half hours of a meal with a glass of water or juice, without chewing it. The tablet can be broken in half if needed.
Consider reducing the dose as necessary following the monitoring of calcium levels.
If you take Accrete D3 tablets for a prolonged period of time serum calcium levels should be followed and renal function should be monitored (by checking serum creatinine levels). Monitoring is especially important in:
- patients aged 65+ on concomitant treatment with cardiac glycosides or diuretics
- in patients with a high tendency to calculus formation.
Vitamin D should be used with caution in patients with impairment of renal function and the effect on calcium and phosphate levels should be monitored. The risk of soft tissue calcification should be taken into account. In patients with severe renal insufficiency, vitamin D in the form of colecalciferol is not metabolised normally and other forms of vitamin D should be used.
Accrete D3 film-coated tablets should be prescribed with caution to patients suffering from sarcoidosis, due to the risk of increased metabolism of vitamin D into its active form. These patients should be monitored with regard to the calcium content in serum and urine.
Accrete D3 film-coated tablets should be used with caution in immobilised patients with osteoporosis due to increased risk of hypercalcaemia.
If you are taking other supplements containing Vitamin D, please check with your pharmacist or doctor before taking Accrete-D3.
This medication can be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. During pregnancy, the daily dose should not exceed 1500mg of calcium and 600IU of vitamin

- Oxalic acid (found in spinach, sorrel and rhubarb) and phytic acid (found in whole cereals) may inhibit calcium absorption through the formation of insoluble compounds with calcium ions. The patient should not take calcium products within two hours of eating foods high in oxalic acid and phytic acid.
