Reviews for Veltassa
For Hyperkalemia "Long term user of Kayexalate for progressive renal failure with recurring increased K+, waiting for renal transplant, with warnings of GI complications with chronic use by previous and current Nephrologists! Evidence of hyperkalemia as high as 6.2 on labs drawn periodically probably due to unknown high K+ dietary indiscretions. Have been using veltassa 8.4 Gm, daily. Used minimal amount of ice water with equal amount of ice cold apple juice then added contents of package to the fluid in a cocktail shaker, shook vigorously, and swallowed two times after shaking. Occasionally added additional ice water to mix and swallow residual--NO BIG DEAL! Occasional GI gas without being sure that it was from the veltassa-worked well, stabilized K+, and now off daily dose, but take an occasional dose when concerned about dietary indescretions."
