Can Shelcal be taken instead of Osteomax safely?
My wife is 21 weeks pregnant and Gynae/OBS specialist has prescribed Tab Osteomax 500 mg. However, it was not available and pharmacist/chemist has mentioned Shelcal 500 is exactly same.
1) Can she take Shelcal instead of Osteaomax?
2) Is there any difference between the two medicines?
tb shelcal CT
Hello and welcome to HCM FORUM. Thanks for writing in to us with your health query. I will advise you to take tb shelcal CT in place of only Shelcal as it has calcitriol too which is an activated form of Vit D 3. It will be better than former for a pregnant woman. In case you have any other query feel free to discuss.regards Dr Manisha Jain.
