General Information on Renagel
Renagel is a Sevelamer containing medicine that binds phosphate. People suffering from hypocalcemia and chronic kidney problems are advised to buy Renagel to treat their condition. Kidney disorder patients undergoing dialysis are prescribed this medicine to balance the phosphate levels in their blood. Maintaining low phosphate levels in the blood keeps the bones healthy and prevents unwanted minerals from accumulating within your body. Low phosphate levels lower the risk of heart problems and strokes by withholding the phosphate from being absorbed into the body.
Side Effects of Renagel
Diarrhea, upset stomach, nausea, headache, vomiting, bloating, constipation and cough are some of the side effects of using Renagel. While mild side effects may be bearable, persistent discomfort should be reported to the doctor as soon as possible. These, however, are mild side effects that may or may not manifest in most patients.
Severe side effects are rare and include dialysis site access problems, severe constipation, abdominal swelling accompanied by pain, chest pain, swelling in the legs and breathing trouble. Severe side effects most likely occur due to allergic reactions to Sevelamer in the medicine. Allergies can often be identified by accompanying itching and swelling. Any reaction requires immediate medical attention and the patient needs to get in touch with his/her doctor to counteract the side effects.
Precautions to be followed while using Renagel
Patients with gastrointestinal disorders should use medicines containing Sevelamer with caution. Also, those suffering from swallowing disorders, severe GI motility problems and dysphagia should also use this medication only after it has been cleared by a doctor. Renagel is to be avoided by those affected by hypophosphatemia or low blood phosphate, intestinal blockages, and are suffering from allergic reactions due to Sevelamer. In case this medication is absolutely necessary, a doctor will prescribe the safe dosage and counteractive medicine.
When you buy Renagel, keep in mind that it is an oral medication which should usually be taken thrice a day with meals. Alternatively, buy Renagel in doses as prescribed by your doctor. A powder form of Renagel is available, and it needs to be mixed with water before drinking. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for the amount of water to be mixed.
The tablets are available in two strengths: Renagel 400mg tablets are packed in bottles of 360 tablets, whereas Renagel 800mg comes as 180 tablets in a single bottle. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not crushed or chewed. Use the dosage as prescribed and do not alter the medication without consulting your doctor.
Doctors will ask for your medical history before they prescribe Renagel. Your doctor and pharmacist may already be monitoring any possible drug interactions, but it is still advisable to be aware of which compounds may interact with Renagel use. Ciprofloxacin and Mycophenolate get affected by regular Renagel use. Iron absorption may also be hampered.
Direct interference with other medications is not usual for Renagel, but it is possible that the Sevelamer can bind with some chemicals causing them to be passed out of the body without being absorbed. Therefore, any other medication should be taken at a gap of thirty minutes while using Renagel.
Medications have different effects on different people. Therefore, it is best to get in touch with your doctor for detailed explanations regarding your particular condition and to not buy Renagel on your own.
