## Where is there a financial patient assistance program for Phoslo? ## Many prescription drug manufacturers have programs specifically for the products they make, so you can try contacting the manufacturer and asking them. Another alternative would be to ask your doctor about an over the counter equivelent, you would have to take more of the medication to hit the same dose, but it might be cheaper that way. ## Generic for Phoslo (Calcium Acetate) is used to treat hyperphosphatemia (high blood phosphate levels) in patients with kidney disease.
