Long term use of Pansec 40 MG Injection decreases the calcium absorption in your body leading to reduced bone density (thinning of bones).

Using Vitamin D supplements along with Pansec 40 MG Injection can help to increase calcium absorption in your body.

Lupus erythematosus

Lupus may occur or gets worse while using Pansec 40 MG Injection. Inform your doctor immediately if you experience tiredness, painful joints, rashes, or lesions on the skin while using this medicine.

Hypomagnesemia

Prolonged use of Pansec 40 MG Injection may result in a reduction of magnesium levels in your blood (hypomagnesemia). Inform your doctor in case of dizziness, irregular heartbeat, shivering, muscle pain, seizures or fits. You may have to check magnesium levels in the blood at regular intervals.
