User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Is Acutrol taken with food?

Yes, Acutrol can be taken with food. It is recommended to take 1-2 tablets (based on individual needs) thrice daily. It is important to take it with meals because Acutrol works by binding to phosphate from food. Take it exactly as advised by your doctor.

Q. Can Acutrol be crushed?

No, you should not crush, chew, or break Acutrol into pieces. You should swallow it as a whole with water.

Q. Why is it important for me to take Acutrol?

It is important to take Acutrol as patients undergoing dialysis cannot control the phosphate levels in their blood, especially after a meal. When the level of phosphate exceeds above the range in the blood, it may cause problems such as itchy skin, red eyes, high blood pressure, bone pain, and also increase the risk of fractures. These increased serum phosphate levels are reduced by Acutrol, as it binds phosphate from food in the digestive tract.

Q. Does Acutrol cause constipation?

A common side effect of Acutrol is constipation, though it does not occur in everyone. The other common side effects of stomach and intestine include diarrhea, indigestion, flatulence, and pain in abdomen. Immediately consult your doctor if these side effects become severe and disturb you.

Q. Who should not take Acutrol?

Patients who are allergic to Acutrol and who have low levels of phosphate in blood should avoid taking Acutrol. Additionally, patients having intestinal obstruction should also avoid using Acutrol.

Q. Can I take ciprofloxacin while I am taking Acutrol?

Ciprofloxacin may interfere with the working of Acutrol and therefore it should not be taken at the same time as Acutrol. However, if taken together then a gap of at least 2 hours before or 6 hours after taking Acutrol should be maintained.

Q. How long do I need to take Acutrol?

Continue taking Acutrol as long as recommended by your doctor. Acutrol lowers your dietary phosphate levels but does not cure your disease. Hence, you may have to take it life long, as stopping Acutrol may result in an increase in your phosphate levels.

Q. Do I need to have any tests while taking Acutrol?

Yes, serum phosphate levels should be monitored regularly while you are taking Acutrol. Also, the use of Acutrol may decrease the levels of vitamin D, A, E, K, and folic acid and hence the levels need to be monitored during the treatment.
