(Hereditary soft bones)

All Medications for Hypophosphatemic rickets

  • Vitamin D2
    (Ergocalciferol)
    Prescription or OTC

    Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) works for vitamin D deficiencies and is available over the counter, but your body doesn't absorb it as well as Vitamin D3.

    • Available dosage forms:
    • Pill
    • Liquid capsule
    • Liquid
  • Rocaltrol
    (Calcitriol)
    Prescription only

    Rocaltrol (Calcitriol) is the strongest form of vitamin D available, but it's prescription-only and more expensive than over-the-counter alternatives, and you have to get regular blood tests.

    • Available dosage forms:
    • Pill
    • Liquid
    • Injection
