Pre-clinical studies conducted in various animal species have demonstrated that toxic effects occur in animals at doses much higher than those required for therapeutic use in humans 1

In toxicity studies at repeated doses, the effects most commonly reported were increased calciuria and decreased phosphaturia and proteinuria 1

Hypercalcaemia has been reported in high doses. In a state of prolonged hypercalcaemia, histological alterations (calcification) were more frequently borne by the kidneys, heart, aorta, testes, thymus and intestinal mucosa 1

Colecalciferol has been shown to be teratogenic at high doses in animals 1

At doses equivalent to those used therapeutically, colecalciferol has no teratogenic activity1

Colecalciferol has no potential mutagenic or carcinogenic activity1
