End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also known as Kidney Failure is a illness condition which means kidneys fail to work effectively. In order to control some symptoms and protect remaining renal function, it is necessary to take medications, meanwhile, patients also should keep alert while taking medications. Here we will share with some information about “Contraindicated Medicines of Renal Failure Patients.”
Common medications for kidney disease patients.
Kidney failure patients have to take many drugs to alleviate symptoms and make them more comfortable such as painkillers to sooth pain, diuretics to alleviate swelling, antibiotics to treat infections and inflammations, antihypertensive agents to lower high blood pressure, hormones, immunosupperssants as well as many other drugs.
Facts about these medications.
Everything has two sides, let alone drugs. The side effects and complications of hormones and immunosuppressants are well known, but patients may not have full knowledge of renal toxicities of certain drugs. Some drugs can cause or worsen high creatinine level and even some can speed up progression of kidney failure. As a matter of fact, we do not deny that these drugs have obvious and quick effects on alleviating symptoms, long-term intake of these drugs is very harmful to the kidneys.
There are some drugs should be contraindicated or at least should not be taken as long-term remedy.
1. Antibiotics: penicillin, cephalosporins,nitrifurantoin, vancomycin, ciprofloxacin, methicillin, etc.
2. Antiviral drugs: indianvir, tenofovir, acyclovir, etc.
