CKD=chronic kidney disease; HP=hyperphosphatemia; DD=dialysis.

Strong and sustained phosphorus reductions for more than a year of treatment1

  • AURYXIA helped lower serum phosphorus to the normal range2,3
  • Patients on AURYXIA had a mean serum phosphorus level of 7.41 mg/dL at baseline and 4.88 mg/dL at Week 562




AURYXIA® (ferric citrate) is contraindicated in patients with iron overload syndromes, e.g., hemochromatosis


  • Iron Overload: Increases in serum ferritin and transferrin saturation (TSAT) were observed in clinical trials with AURYXIA in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on dialysis treated for hyperphosphatemia, which may lead to excessive elevations in iron stores. Assess iron parameters prior to initiating AURYXIA and monitor while on therapy. Patients receiving concomitant intravenous (IV) iron may require a reduction in dose or discontinuation of IV iron therapy
  • Risk of Overdosage in Children Due to Accidental Ingestion: Accidental ingestion and resulting overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6 years of age. Advise patients of the risks to children and to keep AURYXIA out of the reach of children


The most common adverse reactions reported with AURYXIA in clinical trials were:

  • Diarrhea (21%), discolored feces (19%), nausea (11%), constipation (8%), vomiting (7%) and cough (6%)


  • Pregnancy and Lactation: There are no available data on AURYXIA use in pregnant women to inform a drug-associated risk of major birth defects and miscarriage. However, an overdose of iron in pregnant women may carry a risk for spontaneous abortion, gestational diabetes and fetal malformation. Data from rat studies have shown the transfer of iron into milk, hence, there is a possibility of infant exposure when AURYXIA is administered to a nursing woman


When clinically significant drug interactions are expected, e.g., Ciprofloxacin or Doxycycline, separate timing of administration.


AURYXIA® (ferric citrate) is indicated for the control of serum phosphorus levels in adult patients with chronic kidney disease on dialysis
