I have end stage kidney failure but am not on dialysis at this time. I was taking 4 tablets a day, three times a day before meals, to get phosphorus levels down.

I probably wouldnt use it again. No other side effects.

I take them and renagel and my phosphrus is still high. It upsets my stomach and the capsuls stick to my mouth making it hard to swallow them. I broke one open and it's just a pill in a capsule.
