Miacalcin

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known exactly what to expect from an overdose. Potential effects could include:
 
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Low calcium in the blood
  • Muscle twitches or spasms
  • Seizures
  • An irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
     
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention.
 
 

How Should Miacalcin Be Stored?

Store Miacalcin injection in the refrigerator; be sure to avoid freezing it.
 
Each unopened nasal spray bottle should be stored in the refrigerator, but must be stored at room temperature once opened. Before you use each bottle for the first time, make sure to let it warm up to room temperature. Keep Miacalcin nasal spray and all other medications out of the reach of children. Once you have assembled the nasal spray bottle, it must be stored upright, not on its side.
 
Each bottle can be used for only 35 days after the first use. You must discard the bottle after 35 days, even if there is some medication left in it.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Miacalcin as scheduled and remember on the same day, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
