Changes to Colecalciferol Medication

Medication changes to take place

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING A CHANGE IN YOUR MEDICATION

The practice constantly reviews repeat prescriptions to ensure we give our patients the most appropriate, effective and safe medicines available. As part of this review we have reviewed your prescription for Colecalciferol (this may be prescribed under the brand name Fultium D3, Desunin or Bio-Vitamin D3). We will be changing prescriptions for this product to Invita D3 capsules as supported by South Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups. This medication contains the same form of vitamin D at the same strength. We are therefore changing your prescription to:

Invtia D3 800iu Capsules

Please finish your current supply of medicines before starting this new formulation.  We hope you will support us in making these small changes. We are confident that you will not experience any problems. However, if you would like to talk about the change, please do not hesitate to contact prescriptions.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

Hannah Mitchell

Clinical Prescribing Pharmacist
