How VELTASSA works—and keeps working
- VELTASSA binds to excess potassium in the colon and removes it from your body. VELTASSA is not absorbed by the body.
- *In a 52-week clinical study, up to 95% of people taking VELTASSA reduced their potassium levels and kept them normal over time (3.8 to <5.1 mEq/L).
- If you stop taking VELTASSA, even for a few days, your potassium levels can increase.†
†In a clinical study, patients who stopped taking VELTASSA experienced an increase in their potassium levels within 1 week.
