One-Alpha vitamin D supplement
One-Alpha is a form of vitamin D used in vitamin supplements. It is converted rapidly in the liver to the active metabolite, 1, 25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (calcitriol) and controls the intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate.
This medicine is used for hypocalcaemia (low blood calcium level) in the neonate, low parathyroid function (hypoparathyroidism), over activity of the parathyroid glands (hyperparathyroidism), and prevention of softening of bones due to vitamin D deficiency.
- Lack of vitamin D may cause a condition called rickets, especially in children, in which bones and teeth are weak.
- In adults it may cause a condition called osteomalacia, in which calcium is lost from bones.
- Do not take antacids or other medicines containing magnesium and dietary supplements while you are using One-Alpha.
- Do not take more than the recommended daily amount, too much over a period of time can cause poisoning and even death.
- Do not take any nonprescription medicine that contains calcium, phosphorus, or vitamin D while you are taking One –Alpha dietary supplements.

- are allergic to One-Alpha and any other substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes;
