INTRODUCTION:

SEVAPIK 400MG contains Sevelamer carbonate which belongs to a class of medicines called Phosphate binders. It binds phosphate from food in the digestive tract and reduces serum phosphorus levels in the blood. It is used to control hyperphosphataemia in dialysis, for patients undergoing haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis and with chronic kidney disease who are not on dialysis and have a serum phosphorus level equal to or above 1.78 mmol/l. It works by preventing hyperphosphatemia by binding to dietary phosphate in the gut and thus preventing its absorption and decreases serum phosphate levels.

High levels of serum phosphorus can lead to hard deposits in your body called calcification. These deposits can stiffen your blood vessels and make it harder for blood to be pumped around the body. It can also lead to itchy skin, red eyes, bone pain and fractures.

Take this medicine according to the dose and frequency as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break the medicine. This medicine has no or negligible influence on the ability to driving or using machines. It is not recommended for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. The most common side effect is constipation. It is not recommended for use in children below 6 years of age.
