  • Kayexalate Overview

    Kayexalate is used to treat a high level of potassium in your blood. Too much potassium in your blood can sometimes cause heart rhythm problems. Sodium polystyrene sulfonate works by helping your body get rid of extra potassium.

  • How to Use Kayexalate

    Take Kayexalate by mouth, or use it rectally as directed by your doctor. If you are taking Kayexalate by mouth, take it usually 1 to 4 times a day as directed by your doctor. To prepare the liquid suspension, carefully measure the prescribed dose of the powder and mix it with the prescribed amount of water or flavored syrup as directed. Stir well and drink the entire dose. Stay upright (sitting, standing, or walking) and do not lie down for at least an hour after your dose. Consult your doctor for details. Sodium polystyrene sulfonate may decrease your absorption of other medications. Take your other medications as directed by your doctor, usually at least 3 hours before or 3 hours after sodium polystyrene sulfonate. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information or if you have any questions. To give Kayexalate rectally as an enema, use the prescribed dose usually every 6 hours as needed or as directed by your doctor. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for directions on how to prepare and mix the dose into a suspension and how to use the enema. Follow instructions for the use of a cleansing enema both before and after your dose of sodium polystyrene sulfonate. The cleansing enema after each rectal dose of Kayexalate should be a non-sodium-containing enema. Stir the suspension well, and use it soon after mixing. Do not store the mixture for more than 24 hours. Do not heat Kayexalate because it may not work as well. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Do not use more of Kayexalate or use it for longer than directed because your potassium blood level may drop too low. Keep all laboratory and medical appointments so your doctor can check your potassium blood level.
