What should I do if I miss my dose?

Prescription requirement for sevelamer

Sevelamer is a prescription medication and requires a prescription from a healthcare provider.

Active ingredient of sevelamer and mechanism of action

The active ingredient in sevelamer is sevelamer hydrochloride or sevelamer carbonate. It belongs to a class of medications known as phosphate binders. Sevelamer works by binding to dietary phosphate in the digestive tract, preventing its absorption into the bloodstream. This helps to lower elevated levels of phosphate in the body, particularly in individuals with chronic kidney disease.

Uses of sevelamer

Sevelamer is a polymer, primarily used for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia (high serum phosphorus levels) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD patients) who are on dialysis. It helps to control phosphate levels and prevent complications associated with elevated phosphate levels, such as bone problems. Sevelamer is also used to reduce low-density lipoprotein and total cholesterol levels.

Forms of sevelamer

Sevelamer is available in various dosage forms, including sevelamer HCl 800 mg tablets and oral powder for suspension. The specific form and strength will depend on the intended use and the formulation of the medication.

Dosage of sevelamer

The daily dose of sevelamer will vary depending on individual patient factors, including the severity of hyperphosphatemia and the prescribed treatment regimen. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by a healthcare professional. The tablets should be taken with meals and the powder for suspension should be mixed with water and consumed as directed. If you are switching from calcium acetate to sevelamer, your doctor will decide the best dose for you.
