    I am writing for my husband. He is in a nursing home in another city. He is on dialysis for kidney failure. He is prescribed pills at 667 mg 4 times a day. Last week he was ordered 3 pills at each dosage. He was doing okay and had no problems. Yesterday he told me they upped his dosage to 5 pills at each dosage and he is vomiting. At this dosage he is taking 13,340 mg per day. I am hoping someone can help me with what the recommended dosage per day for a 48 year old man, 130 pounds, and 5 foot 9 inches. I am trying to get ahold of his dialysis center but it is taking longer than I want. His doctor at the nursing home is a fruitloop.

    I have been a renal patient for almost three years. Been on Phoslo the entire time. About 8 months into this I experienced cronic diarrhea and it hasn't stopped. That was almost two years ago. Nausua and diarrhea are a way of life for me now because of the Phoslo. I have tried other phosphate inhibitors, but their side effects intensify the problems I already have. Guess this is the best there is. Pitty.

    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.

    I have ESRD and take 5 caps with meals 3 with snacks. When I do take pills during or right after eating, my phos levels are lower than not. Never had any side effects with this drug. Also equally effective in liquid form.
