Buy Calcichew 500mg

Calcichew 500mg are orange flavoured chewable tablets that contain calcium. 

Calcium is important when it comes to your diet as it helps with bone formation. 


How Calcichew works

Calcichew contains the active ingredient calcium. It works by increasing the amount of calcium in your body.

The tablets are used to prevent and treat calcium deficiency. It may also be used in patients receiving dialysis. It has the ability to remove the phosphate from the blood that cannot be removed by dialysis.  

Calcichew 500mg is also used in people with certain bone conditions, such as osteoporosis and is often used during pregnancy.



Always take Calcichew exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 

For use as additional osteoporosis therapy: 1 tablet should be taken 2-3 times per day.

For calcium deficiency: 1 tablet should be taken 2-3 times per day. 

For kidney failure patients on dialysis (as a phosphate binder): Your doctor will inform you how many Calcichew tablets you need.

If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
