Velacar has a active ingredient in Velacar is sevelamer carbonate, a polymeric amine that binds phosphate and is meant for oral administration. If you have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are on dialysis, your doctor may prescribe a phosphate binder called Velacar (sevelamer carbonate) to help remove the extra phosphorus from your body. Unlike other phosphate binders, Velacar does not contain calcium or metal, which can stay in your body. It is also not absorbed; therefore, it does not accumulate in your body. Velacar effectively lowers serum phosphorus in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients on dialysis.
