How Replavite Works
This medication is a vitamin supplement designed for people with kidney disease. It contains water-soluble vitamins vitamin C and B vitamins including folic acid. This medication provides the water-soluble vitamins that may be lost during dialysis or deficient in your diet. It contains the right amount of vitamins B and C, and folic acid to meet the needs of dialysis patients. B vitamins help the bone marrow make red blood cells and prevent anemia. Vitamin C keeps bones, teeth and skin healthy. Vitamin C also helps your body fight infections and helps heal wounds. Take this vitamin once daily with food and after dialysis if possible. Do not take more or less than is prescribed. On your hemodialysis days, take Replavite after the treatment is over. This is because Replavite is removed by dialysis.
