Details: I am newly diagnosed with Renal Failure. Can you guide me what drugs contraindicated for my problem?
Most of the drugs are eliminated through the kidneys. In case of Renal Failure, the severely impaired kidneys are not able to remove the drug and their active metabolites from the body via urine. So with repeated dosing and inability to eliminate the drug from the body, the drug starts to build up in the body to toxic levels.
The most common classes of medicines that aggravate kidney damage are aminoglycosides, ACE inhibitors, ARB, NSAIDs and radiological contrast media. Others are Vancomycin, Amphotericin B, Cisplatin and cyclosporine.
If you are not sure if the medicines you are taking are safe for Renal Failure, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our kidney doctor will offer you professional suggestions.
