Take Zemplar (paricalcitol) exactly as your doctor directs. Zemplar is a liquid-filled capsule that comes in a range of doses. If you have Stage 3 or Stage 4 chronic kidney disease, your doctor will determine whether you should take a capsule every day or every other day. If you have Stage 5 chronic kidney disease, you will likely be given intravenous Zemplar every other day.

You can take Zemplar with or without food.
