hello there. whom did you consult? shelcal is a calcium supplement. it's OK to take it for 3 months after that you can take calcium rich foods. for VIT D3 you can take injections once a week for 3 days and then sit in the sun for about 20 mins so that VIT D3 can be produced in the body itself. for other medicines, consult a orthopedician. regards

Hi. The duration of nurgaba and D bright is definitely very long and not necessary. Recheck with your doctor
