Cautions and Warnings 
Patients undergoing immunosuppressive therapy should discuss the use of this product with their health care practitioner. Each pouch of Immunocal provides 9 grams of protein. Patients on a protein-restricted diet need to take this into account when calculating their daily protein load. Although a bovine milk derivative, Immunocal contains less than 1% lactose and is therefore well tolerated by lactose-intolerant individuals. Consult a health care practitioner before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Contra-Indications 
Immunocal is contraindicated in individuals who develop or have known hypersensitivity to specific milk proteins (this does not include lactose intolerance).

Known Adverse Reactions 
Gastrointestinal bloating and cramps are possible if the product is not sufficiently rehydrated. Transient urticarial-like skin rash has been reported in rare individuals undergoing severe detoxification reaction. Skin rash abates when product intake is stopped or reduced.
