    Caused severe high blood pressure after using this drug for 2 weeks,for which my Md.prescribed Norvasc. This side effect was not in the product insert under"side effects". Thankfully I investigated further using webmd and found that my sudden and severe high blood pressure was listed under uncommon "side effect". I have been a dialysis patient for 5 years and never had high blood pressure until starting Renvela for my high phosphate levels. I've printed this information for my Doctor and am discontinuing Renvela. I took lanthanum carbonate(Fosrenol) prior to Renvela and will go back to using that to prevent my high phosphate levels. Thank You Webmd!!!

    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.

    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 effects. Any recommendations?
