Doxercalciferol is a synthetic formulation of vitamin D. As with natural vitamin D, doxercalciferol helps the body absorb calcium and phosphate, supports bone development, and metabolizes magnesium.

Doxercalciferol also regulates thyroid function in people with chronic kidney disease. Doxercalciferol liquid-filled capsules are taken orally. Doxercalciferol is manufactured under the brand name Hectorol.
