Sensipar How to Take

Sensipar (Cinacalcet) belongs to the class of medications called calcimimetic agents. Sensipar (Cinacalcet) is used to treat overactive parathyroid glands for people with chronic Kidney Disease who are receiving dialysis for the kidney disease. Sensipar (Cinacalcet) is also used to reduce high calcium in the blood for people with parathyroid cancer and hyperparathyroidism that cannot have surgery.

The parathyroid glands work to control the levels of calcium, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone in the body. If the parathyroid glands produce too much parathyroid hormone, the amount of calcium in the blood increases. This calcium often comes from the bones, causing the bones to weaken if it is allowed to continue for long periods of time.

When the kidneys aren't working properly, such as in chronic kidney disease, the parathyroid glands become overactive, causing an imbalance in the calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood. Sensipar (Cinacalcet) works to control the parathyroid hormone, regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood.

Your doctor may have suggested Sensipar (Cinacalcet) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Sensipar (Cinacalcet), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Sensipar (Cinacalcet) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Sensipar (Cinacalcet) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Sensipar (Cinacalcet) if their doctor has not prescribed it.
