The effects of Calcium 500 mg Pharmavit and other concomitant medications may interfere with each other.
Calcium can potentiate the effect and impair the tolerance of cardiotonic drugs (eg digoxin), reduce the effect of certain antibiotics (tetracyclines and kanamycin) and fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A and D) because it reduces their absorption. Calcium absorption deteriorates phytic acid and oxalic acid, magnesium, potassium and sodium salts. The risk of hypercalcaemia (excessive calcium in the blood) is present with concomitant use of vitamin D preparations.
