FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: ROCALTROL

User Comments:


For Hypocalcemia “I too take Rocaltrol, but the generic form which is Calcitriol. I had thyroid cancer and my parathyroid was messed up during the removal of the thyroid. Without this medication my body would go numb and I would have facial spasms. I will have to take this medication the rest of my life, but I’m thankful I can get it and insurance does pay for it.”

For Hypocalcemia “As a result of thyroid/parathyroid cancer, I have a hypocalcaemic and hypoparathyroid condition. Therefore I must take rocaltrol to maintain adequate calcium levels and to lower TSH levels to prevent the return of cancer. The supplier to my pharmacy no longer has any rocaltrol in stock , and I am in desperate need. Can you help?”
