DOPLET 3 Injection is a medication that contains Vitamin D3 as its active ingredient. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in maintaining proper bone health and calcium metabolism. The injection is designed for parenteral administration, allowing for the rapid absorption of Vitamin D3 into the bloodstream.
- Vitamin D Deficiency: DOPLET 3 Injection is primarily used to treat and prevent Vitamin D deficiency, a condition that can lead to weakened bones, muscle weakness, and various skeletal disorders.
- Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia: It may be prescribed to individuals with osteoporosis or osteomalacia to improve bone mineral density and reduce the risk of fractures.
- Rickets: DOPLET 3 Injection can be used in the treatment of rickets, a condition primarily seen in children, characterized by soft and weak bones.
- Hypoparathyroidism: It may be utilized in the management of hypoparathyroidism, a condition where the parathyroid glands produce insufficient parathyroid hormone, leading to low blood calcium levels.
DOPLET 3 Injection is generally well-tolerated, but like any medication, it may cause some side effects in certain individuals. Common side effects include:
- Nausea and Vomiting: Some individuals may experience mild nausea or vomiting after receiving the injection.
- Fatigue or Weakness: In some cases, temporary fatigue or weakness may be observed.
- Headache: Mild headaches may occur in certain individuals.
- Dizziness: Rarely, DOPLET 3 Injection may cause dizziness or lightheadedness.

- Sarcoidosis: DOPLET 3 Injection is not recommended for individuals with sarcoidosis, a condition that can lead to increased Vitamin D levels in the body.
