Reviews for Sucroferric oxyhydroxide
Velphoro (sucroferric oxyhydroxide): "I've only been on this med for a week. Discolored stools & diarrhea. I'm hoping this will eventually go away."
Velphoro (sucroferric oxyhydroxide): "I take this medication with water in my mouth as I chew because it’s chalky. It turns your mouth brownish orange but can be rid of by drinking and brushing your teeth. It doesn’t taste horrible, just the dry chalky texture is unpleasant. The only side effect I get is right before my bowel expels it, I get stomach cramps. Then the feces is dark in color. No issues otherwise. It lowers phosphorous great and I only take 1 pill with meals."
Velphoro (sucroferric oxyhydroxide): "Black stool has been my only problem. I was using Renvela, which worked better but made me nauseated. I'm up to 2 tablets per meal and I was taking Tums with it but my calcium level jumped."
Velphoro (sucroferric oxyhydroxide): "Dark stool and stomach discomfort"
Velphoro (sucroferric oxyhydroxide): "BLACK stool, orange residue in mouth (even after brushing), gave me funky breathe after chewing. I found chewing gum would aleviate the residue and breathe."
