Sevelamer, a polymeric compound, acts by binding to phosphate molecules in the gut, limiting its absorption and thus lowering serum phosphate levels w/o altering Ca, Al, or bicarbonate levels.

Drug Interactions ::

May decrease absorption of ciprofloxacin, ciclosporin, mycophenolate, tacrolimus and levothyroxine. Sevelamer should be given 3 hr before or 1 hr after taking other drugs to minimise potential pharmacokinetic interaction.
