    Reviewed doxercalciferolon 8/27/2019For ANY change in this medication--particularly, when increasing--whether you are just starting or making a mid-course adjustment, WEAN yourself on or off by changing the dosage every third day for a week, then every two days for a week, then finally reach the newly prescribe dose. This will help you avoid or minimize bone pane in the joints, ANY joint, that may make it difficult to stand, walk, bend, reach, hold, or press. Consult with your nephrologist.
