Just started on this new drug

I just started this new drug 5 days ago and will try and let everyone know how I do along the way. I have stage 3 ckd with my number of potassium at 5.5. I had been taking Kiotex and it wasn't solving my problem, so my doctor decided to put me on this. Seeing that I am the first one on this forum bothers me....but hoping others will start to respond and we can track each other's progress with this new drug. ## How are you doing on the Patiromer? This medication is used to treat high blood potassium, since that can be just as dangerous as it being too low. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including constipation, abdominal pain, low blood magnesium, and nausea.
