What Medicines Should You Avoid with Kidney DiseaseHealthy kidneys can filter wastes and extra fluids from body. The kidneys also can remove the medicine residuals from your blood.However, in kidney disease, the kidneys fail to work as well as they did in the past. This can cause accumulation of medicines in your blood and some medicines can cause significant damage to your kidneys. What medicines should you avoid with Kidney Disease?

Most people who have kidney disease should avoid taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines( NSAIDs). These medicines are often used to treat mild pain caused by toothache,headache, fever, etc. NSAIDs include Celecoxib, Ibuprofen and Naproxen.Some other herbal supplements and medicines for high blood pressure also can cause kidney damage.

Apart from causing kidney damage directly, some medicines may interact with the medicines you are taking. You should make sure your doctor knows well the medicines you take.

What you can do to avoid the side effects of medicines on kidneys?

*When you get a prescription or buy an OTC medicine or supplement, you should ask if they will affect your kidneys and interact with other medicines you presently are taking.

* Keep a current list of all your medicines.Take the list with you each time you see your doctor or see a new doctor. Your doctor may have you avoid certain medicines or may change your dose.

* You should follow the doctor’s direction strictly. Never exceed the dose of the medicines that the doctor recommends.

* NSAIDs are used to relieve pain. If you are only in mild pain, you can try other ways, such as massage. Use medicines if they do not work.
