Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. He will base the dose on your serum phosphorus level.

 

The recommended starting dose of Sevelagen tablets for adults and older people (>65 years) is one to two tablets of 800 mg with each meal, 3 times a day.

 

The tablets must be swallowed whole. Do not crush, chew or break into pieces.
