Doxercalciferol is not recommended for people with high blood levels of calcium, phosphate, or vitamin D. Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant before taking doxercalciferol. Doxercalciferol is a pregnancy category B drug, meaning animal studies do not indicate a risk to a fetus from the medication, but there are not enough studies on risks to human fetuses.

Only use doxercalciferol during pregnancy if clearly necessary. Doxercalciferol does pass through breast milk, which could harm baby. Discuss these risks with your doctor.
