    Comment from: on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year Published: October 14

    Am trying to find out if anyone has experienced MONTHS of nausea and vomiting as a result of taking Fosrenol. At first, it was intermittent. Now, the N&V are occurring on a daily basis and I am scheduled for an abdominal sonogram next week. Could it be the Fosrenol?

    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!!

    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.

    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!
