Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2017.


The drug for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia, the polymer of allylamine carbonate, not absorbed from the digestive tract.
Binding phosphates in the digestive tract, reduces their concentration in the blood serum. The drug does not contain Ca 2+ and therefore does not cause hypercalcemia, observed against the background of the use of other drugs that release phosphate, which contain Ca 2+ .
The effect on the concentration of phosphorus in the blood is preserved when taking the drug for 1 year.


It is not absorbed from the digestive tract.
It is impossible to exclude completely possible systemic absorption and cumulation during long-term use.

- Hyperphosphatemia in chronic renal failure in patients on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis - as part of complex therapy, including preparations of Ca 2+ , colcalciferol or its analogues;

- Hyperphosphatemia in adults on hemodialysis.

Celamerix В® should be used as part of a comprehensive therapy aimed at preventing bone damage due to kidney disease, and including calcium supplements, 1.25-hydroxyvitamin D 3, or one of its analogues.


Is taken orally during a meal.
Tablets should be swallowed whole, without chewing.
For patients who do not receive phosphate binding medicines, the dose should be selected individually based on the measurement of the serum phosphate concentration:

Serum phosphate concentrations in patients not receiving phosphate binding agents The initial dose of Selamex В®

1.76-2.42 mmol / l (5.5-7.5 mg / ml) of 800 mg 3 times / day

> 2.42 mmol / l (> 7.5 mg / ml) to 1600 mg 3 times / day

For patients receiving drugs, phosphate binders (preparations of Ca 2+ ): Assign in equivalent doses in terms of 1 mg of preparations containing Ca 2+ (on the basis of) that the patient took earlier.

The dose varies from 800 to 4000 mg, the maximum daily dose is 7 g. The dose is selected taking into account the concentration of phosphates in the blood serum (necessary decrease to 1.76 mmol / l (5.5 mg / dL) and lower).

The phosphate concentration is monitored every 2-3 weeks until stabilization is achieved.

Selamex В® should be taken while eating and adhere to the established diet.

In clinical practice, there was very rarely an intestinal obstruction.

Side effects often occur in patients in the terminal stage of chronic renal failure.


- hypersensitivity to sevelamer or to auxiliary substances of the drug;

- hypophosphatemia;

- intestinal obstruction;

- Children under 18 years of age (safety and efficacy of the drug in children under 18 years old has not been studied).
