Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query.
Yes you can use OTC calcium with Vitamin D instead of Oysco 500 D and iron for Ferrous sulfate. Both are same and with same effect. You will not lose anything if you switch over to OTC medicines.


Hope i answered your query. If you have any other query, feel free to ask.
