Veltassa Frequently Asked Questions

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. The dosage is based on your medical condition, potassium lab test results, and response to treatment.

Do not heat patiromer or add it to hot foods or liquids. Mix this medication right before taking it. Open the packet and mix the powder as directed with liquid (such as water, apple juice) or soft food (such as applesauce, pudding, yogurt). If using liquid to mix, the powder does not dissolve so the liquid mixture will look cloudy. If any powder is left in the glass after drinking the mixture, add more liquid, stir, and drink it right away to make sure you take the whole dose. If using food to mix, make sure to eat all of the mixture to make sure you take the whole dose.

Patiromer may decrease your absorption of other medications, which may make them work less well. Ask your pharmacist about the other medications you take. You may need to take patiromer at least 3 hours before or 3 hours after certain medications.
