Always take AURYXIA (ah-RICKS-ee-ah) with food, just as your healthcare provider tells you
After AURYXIA enters your stomach, the pill breaks apart and releases iron in your intestines
Iron binds (attaches) to the phosphate that was in your food. The bound iron then carries that phosphate to your colon, where it is removed through your bowel movements
Leftover iron from AURYXIA may be absorbed into your body. Make sure to speak with your healthcare provider about checking your iron levels while taking AURYXIA
AURYXIA can increase iron levels in your blood. Iron absorbed from AURYXIA may also increase iron in your body.
AURYXIA contains iron and may cause dark stools, which is considered normal with oral medications containing iron
