  • Constipation taking Renvela 800mg

    This med gives me constipation all the time.

    Is there anything out there that doesn't give you constipation?

    Thanks!

    Hello Alfred HUS1974,

    I started on Renvela 800 mg and also experience constipation. My nephrologist suggested Senna-S an over the counter laxative/stool softener. One pill a day did the trick. I would have continued taking the Renvela but the cost for the preferred drug was ridiculously high. He prescribed the generic equivalent of Phoslo 667 mg,, Calcium Acetate, which was a fraction of the Renvela. I started taking it and got the same therapeutic effects and bonus - no constipation. I've been on two capsules a day (lunch & dinner) for over three years and I'm satisfied with the performance and price.
