The only oral iron designed for you
AURYXIA®(ferric citrate) is the only oral iron tablet that’s approved to treat iron deficiency anemia specifically in adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) not on dialysis
HOW AURYXIA (ah-RICKS-ee-ah) WORKS
1. CHANGES FORM SO IT'S ABSORBED LIKE IRON FROM YOUR DIET
Once swallowed, the iron in AURYXIA changes form so it can be absorbed by the gut, similar to the way your body absorbs iron from food
2. GETS TRANSPORTED INTO THE BLOODSTREAM
The iron is then transported through the gut and into the blood. Once in the bloodstream, the iron changes back to its original form
3. COMBINED WITH HEMOGLOBIN
Now that iron is back in its original form, the iron can be combined with hemoglobin, the part of the red blood cells that helps carry oxygen
NOT YOUR FIRST TIME TAKING AN ORAL IRON?
Even if a previous oral iron medicine was unsuccessful, AURYXIA is clinically proven to increase hemoglobin and iron levels
AURYXIA IMPROVED HEMOGLOBIN AND IRON LEVELS
AURYXIA increased hemoglobin and iron levels without the use of intravenous (IV) iron or erythropoiesis-stimulating agents
WHEN TAKING AURYXIA, HERE'S SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND
AURYXIA can not only raise iron levels, but it is also approved to lower phosphorus levels in adults with CKD on dialysis. Your doctor will monitor your levels throughout your time taking AURYXIA
