Use1

ZEMPLAR® (paricalcitol) Capsules are an active form of vitamin D used to prevent and treat secondary hyperparathyroidism (increased parathyroid hormone levels) in patients with Stage 3 or Stage 4 chronic kidney disease and in Stage 5 patients on dialysis.

  • To help lower your chance of getting symptoms of high calcium in your blood, your doctor should make sure the level of calcium in your blood is 9.5 mg/dL or lower before starting you on ZEMPLAR Capsules if you have Stage 5 kidney failure and are on dialysis.

Important Safety Facts About Zemplar1

  • ZEMPLAR® Capsules should not be given to patients with evidence of hypercalcemia or vitamin D toxicity.
  • Excessive administration of vitamin D compounds can cause over suppression of parathyroid hormone (PTH), hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria, hyperphosphatemia, and adynamic bone disease. During ZEMPLAR Capsules therapy, withhold prescription doses of vitamin D compounds and its derivatives.
  • Use caution when ZEMPLAR Capsules are prescribed concomitantly with high doses of calcium-containing preparations and thiazide diuretics or digitalis compounds. Digitalis toxicity is potentiated by hypercalcemia of any cause.
  • Monitor serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, and PTH during initial dosing or following any adjustment. ZEMPLAR Capsules may increase serum creatinine and therefore decrease the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).
  • To prevent aluminum toxicity, avoid excessive use of aluminum-containing compounds.
  • Strong CYP3A inhibitors (e.g., ketoconazole) will increase the exposure of paricalcitol; use with caution.
