    ALLERGY STATEMENT

    This product has been manufactured in a facility that also manufactures products containing tree nuts, peanuts, fish, egg, wheat, milk, soy and shellfish. Individuals with allergies to these substances should use discretion.

  • INDICATIONS AND USAGE

    As a phosphorus supplement, each tablet supplies 25% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (U.S. RDA) of phosphorus for adults and children over 4 years of age.

    Virt-Phos 250 Neutral increases urinary phosphate and pyrophosphate.

  • CONTRAINDICATIONS

    This product is contraindicated in patients with infected phosphate stones in the urinary tract, in patients with severely impaired renal function (less than 30% of normal) and in the presence of hyperphosphatemia.

  • PRECAUTIONS

    General

    This product contains potassium and sodium and should be used with caution if clinical management of these elements is desired. Some individuals may experience a mild laxative effect during the first few days of phosphate therapy; lower the daily dose until this effect subsides or, if necessary, discontinue the use of the product. Caution should be exercised when prescribing this product in the following conditions: Cardiac disease (particularly in patients receiving digitalis); severe adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease); acute dehydration; severe renal insufficiency; renal function impairment or chronic renal disease; extensive tissue breakdown (such as with severe burns); myotonia congenita; cardiac failure; cirrhosis of the liver or severe hepatic disease; peripheral or pulmonary edema; hypernatremia; hypertension; toxemia of pregnancy; hypoparathyroidism; and acute pancreatitis. High serum phosphate levels may increase the incidence of extraskeletal calcification.

    Information for Patients

    Patients with kidney stones may pass old stones when phosphate therapy is started and should be warned of this possibility. Patients should be advised to avoid the use of antacids containing aluminum, magnesium, or calcium because they may prevent the absorption of phosphate.

    Laboratory Tests

    Careful monitoring of renal function and serum calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium may be required at periodic intervals during phosphate therapy. Other tests may be warranted in some patients, depending on conditions.

    Drug Interactions

    The use of antacids containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium in conjunction with phosphate preparations may bind the phosphate and prevent its absorption. Concurrent use of antihypertensive drugs or corticosteroids with sodium phosphate may result in hypernatremia. Calcium-containing preparations and/or Vitamin D may antagonize the effects of phosphates in the treatment of hypercalcemia. Potassium-containing medication or potassium-sparing diuretics may cause hyperkalemia. Patients should have serum potassium level determinations at periodic intervals.

    Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

    No long term or reproduction studies in animals or humans have been performed with Virt-Phos 250 Neutral to evaluate its carcinogenic, mutagenic, or impairment of fertility potential.

    Pregnancy and Lactation

    Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Virt-Phos 250 Neutral. It is also not known whether this product can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. This product should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

    It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when this product is administered to a nursing woman.

    Pediatric Use

    See DIRECTIONS FOR USE.

    SIDE EFFECTS
