58 Possible Causes for Drug-induced Hypercalcemia

  • Dihydrotachysterol

    Calcitonin, cholestyramine, prednisone, sodium EDTA and mithramycin have all been used successfully to treat the more resistant cases of vitamin D-induced hypercalcemia.[] Hypocalcemia Adult: PO 0.25 mg/d Renal Osteodystrophy Adult: PO 0.1–0.6 mg/d Child: PO 0.1–0.5 mg/d Oral Withhold drug if signs and symptoms of hypercalcemia appear (see[] Drug Interactions Decreased effect/levels of vitamin D: Cholestyramine, colestipol, mineral oil; phenytoin and phenobarbital may inhibit activation and decrease effectiveness[]

  • Calcitriol

    Drug: thiazide diuretics may cause hypercalcemia; calcifediol-induced hypercalcemia may precipitate digitalis arrhythmias in patients receiving digitalis glycosides .[] Interactions Drug-drug. Antacids containing magnesium: May induce hypermagnesemia, especially in patients with chronic renal failure. Avoid use together.[] Metabolic: Vitamin D intoxication, hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria, hyperphosphatemia. CNS: Headache, weakness. Special Senses: Blurred vision, photophobia.[]

  • Calcium-Containing Antacid

    Abstract Aim: To evaluate the effects of an Al 3 - and Mg 2 -containing antacid, ferrous sulfate, and calcium carbonate on the absorption of nemonoxacin in healthy humans. Methods: Two single-dose, open-label, randomized, crossover studies were conducted in 24 healthy male Chinese volunteers (12 per study). In[…][]

  • Calcium Glubionate

    Overview Side Effects Dosage Professional Interactions Pregnancy Applies to the following strengths: 1.8 g/5 mL Usual Adult Dose for Hypocalcemia 15 mL orally 3 times a day before meals. Each 5 mL provides 115 mg of elemental calcium. Treatment may also consist of vitamin D orally. Usual Adult Dose for[…][]

  • Milk-Alkali Syndrome

    This report describes a 64-year-old woman with recurrent hypercalcemia. Her laboratory evaluation was consistent with milk-alkali syndrome. It was eventually discovered that the source of the excessive calcium consumption was nicotine-replacement chewing gum and carbonated water. An extensive literature search was[…][]

  • Calcium Gluconate

    Calcium gluconate Clinical data Pronunciation KAL see um GLUE koe nate AHFS / Monograph Pregnancy category US : A (No risk in human studies) and C Routes of administration by mouth, IV, topical ATC code A12AA03 ( WHO ) D11AX03 ( WHO ) Identifiers IUPAC name calcium (2 R ,3 S ,4 R ,5 R )-[…][]

  • Hypervitaminosis D

    This was a rare case of drug-induced hypercalcemia resulting from inappropriate iatrogenic supplementation of calcium and Vitamin D.[]

  • Vitamin D

    Studies have shown increased urine excretion of vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP) in patients with diabetic nephropathy (DN) resulting from postulated mechanisms linked to renal tubular damage. In this study, we evaluate the utility of VDBP clearance ratio as a novel determinant of glycemic status, DN, and other[…][]

  • Vitamin D Toxicity

    Ten children age 1 1/2 to 14 years, had bilateral nephrocalcinosis and hypercalciuria, but normal serum calcium (Ca) and phosphate (P) concentrations. Patients with hypercalciuria were divided into absorptive (n 4) and renal (n 6) subgroups, and in the latter four patients had a primary Ca-leak and two had a P-leak.[…][]

  • Hypervitaminosis A

    Chronic renal failure patients have been known to develop vitamin A toxicity, but a descriptive study of hypervitaminosis A in patients with acute renal failure (ARF) has not yet been published. The authors observed hypervitaminosis A in pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients. All HSCT patients[…][]
