For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "Works well at keeping my phosphorus down. I take two tablets with my average meals, I take three tablets if I eat an usually large meal. I also take one or two tablets with snacks. The only side affect I've experienced is constipation, I sometimes take a mild stool softener, not a big problem. All medications only work if taken as prescribed on a consistent basis. It's such a small thing to do for your health."
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "I have been taking these for about a year. Seems like one month they work and the next they don't. Even though I am eating the same food and same amount of pills. I seriously wonder if some months they are just sugar pills and not the real thing. I seriously question the quality."
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "Found this to be extremely effective. Need more, but it is overpriced, and I cannot afford it, even with insurance. Why is this so expensive? As I cannot afford almost $300 for 90 day supply (on social security), I will fall back to using Tums, which costs less than $10 for a large container"
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "Started with 2 now I'm up to 4 still no results."
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "The side effect I get from Renvela is constipation"
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "I experienced too many side effects -- constant nausea, itching, & weight gain."
For Hyperphosphatemia of Renal Failure "Up to 4 with each meal. Center didn't believe I was taking them cause my phosphorus levels didn't go down. Better than chewable, if they worked better."
