Always consult a medical doctor or patient care specialist before using Calcitonine Saumon nasal spray.
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. Salmon calcitonin 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.
Do not take Salmon Calcitonin Nasal Spray if:
- You are allergic to any of the ingredients;
- You are taking prescription and over-the-counter medications, such as vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products;
- You have a medical history of low calcium levels in your blood.
