 2  High PTH due to kidney failure Lots of acid stomach and nausea with this drug. Also didn't do anything for my PTH levels. Just makes me feel sick. It's offle. Hoping the Docs will take me off it. Eating fatty foods before taking it is supposed to help. It doesn't, at least not for me. M 30 3 months

 5  ESRF Lowered PTH levels from 1400 to 300, no noticeable side effects. Works very well if taken religiously at largest meal of day. Will only work if you take phosphorus binders with anything you ingest. Should be monitored more than 1X monthly, always scared of doing harm to thyroid if change in eating habits. M 43 7 years

SENSIPAR  (CINACALCET HYDROCHLORIDE):  Cinacalcet is used to treat increased amounts of a certain hormone (parathyroid) in people with long-term kidney disease who are on dialysis. It is also used to treat increased amounts of calcium in people with an overactive parathyroid gland or in people with cancer of the parathyroid gland. Cinacalcet works by decreasing the amount of parathyroid hormone, calcium, and phosphorus in your body. Having the right amount of these substances in your body helps to prevent bone disease.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
