A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Known as Renvela in the UK
Renagel is a prescription medication used for people undergoing kidney dialysis to lower high blood phosphorus level. Renagel uses are for hyperphosphatemia treatment only to reduce risks during kidney dialysis, and the active ingredient Sevelamer phosphate-binds to prevent the body absorbing it and reducing the risk of weakened bone strength and structure (renal osteodystrophy). It is most commonly prescribed as an ESRD treatment drug for people who have end stage renal disease and are receiving dialysis.
You can buy Renagel 800 with a doctor’s prescription, and Renagel generic may be a more affordable option for it when you order drugs online from Canada.
Take orally 2 to 3 times a day with meals as directed by your doctor.
The active ingredient in Renagel is Sevelamer.
Tell your doctor if you have a history of low blood phosphorus levels, stomach or intestinal problems like blockage, colitis, constipation, ulcers, stomach or intestinal surgeries, or dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) before beginning on Renagel.
Do not exceed dosage guidelines as indicated in your prescription.
Keep medication in a cool and dry place.
There is the possibility of drug interactions risks between Renagel and other Rx medications including ciprofloxacin, mycophenolate, and levothyroxine. It is best to tell your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting your prescription and proceeding to buy Renagel 800.
Side effects from Renagel uses are uncommon, but some individuals may experience symptoms such as headache, diarrhea, stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, cough, gas, or constipation. If side effects are experienced then you should stop using the medication and meet with your doctor again to discuss kidney dialysis treatment medication for hyperphosphatemia.
