    Home Hemodialysis patient. Phosphorus was at 11.0 while taking a Renagel pill then my nutritionist suggested I try Fosrenol (2 500mg chewable tablets with meals and snacks) lowered my phosphorus to 3.5. (range is 3.5-5.5) Taste like tums. No stomach problems or nausea. Love this product!

    This is as bad as renvela. Started out just fine, but have chronic gas, stomach pains, and SEVEARE constipation from it, and that is taking only one or two a day.

    Currently on Dialysis for end stage renal failure. Monthly blood work up indicates phosporis leval to be normal. I chew 1 1000mg tab immediately after each meal and snack. Great product for keeping me straight!!
