Open the packet by tearing or cutting along the top.
Now, pour the entire packet into the glass of water just like Huston is doing here.
This packet contains 2.4-grams of citrus flavored Renvela powder.
The number of packets you should use will depend on the instructions that were given to you by your doctor or other healthcare provider.
If your prescription calls for more than one packet, you may mix multiple packets together in the same glass.
For example, mix one 2.4-gram packet with 2 ounces of water, or two 2.4-gram packets with 4 ounces of water, and so on.
Now, stir thoroughly until the mixture becomes cloudy.
