Drugs That React With Calcitriol Ointment

Lithium
Both calcitriol ointment and lithium can increase the risk for high levels of calcium in the blood. While this is probably not a problem with normal usage of calcitriol ointment, you may still want to check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Thiazide Diuretics
Both calcitriol ointment and thiazide diuretics can increase the risk for high levels of calcium in the blood. While this is probably not a problem with normal usage of calcitriol ointment, you may still want to check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Vitamin D
Calcitriol ointment contains a form of vitamin D. Using too much calcitriol ointment may cause high levels of calcium in the blood (known as hypercalcemia). Taking vitamin D supplements could make this problem worse.
 
However, for people using calcitriol ointment appropriately, a normal dosage of a vitamin D supplement is unlikely to cause problems
