Indications and Usage
Calcitonin Salmon Nasal Spray is used to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women who are at least five years old and can not or do not wish to take products containing estrogen. Osteoporosis is a condition that weakens and breaks bones more easily.
Calcitonin is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. Calcitonin Salmon is not derived from salmon, but is a synthetic version of calcitonin produced by salmon. Calcitonin salmon nasal spray works by reducing the rate of bone degradation caused by cells in bones, osteoclasts and can encourage cells called osteoblasts to build bones. This increases the density of the bone in the lower spine.
