Taking for a year. As doage increased, constipation has gotten worse. Take 4 pills with food. Last Phosphorus was 10.2 and I eat right. I only have bowel movements 1 or 2 times a week. Also, blood pressure runs 80/40 since I started taking. Would not recomend to anyone. Stopped taking today. They gave me Fosrenol but I am afraid to take for similar reasons. Same class of meds with same side effect ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
On hemodialysis for kidney failure for about 3 years. Take 3 renvela with each meal. Have been experiencing ongoing diaherrea and was told by the nurse at the dialysis clinic that I go to that Renvela would not cause diaherrea. Imagine my surprise when I read the reviews about how this drug can and does cause diaherrea.
