Can a kidney patient take painkillers?
Q: I have a kidney problem. There are cysts in my right kidney. My creatinine is 2.3 mg/dl, blood urea is 80, sodium 134 and uric acid 6.1. I have controlled blood pressure for the last two years. Proteins are in suitable range. I take Shelcal (2 daily), Metoz (1 daily), Phostat (1 daily), Zyloric (2 daily) and Lasix (1/2 on alternate days). Can I take pain killers, if yes, which ones?
A:Patients with kidney disease should not use common pain killers like Voveran, Brufen (these drugs are called NSAIDS). For pain patients can use Crocin pain relief, Tramadol or Proxyvon. These are safe medicines for patients with kidney disease.
