A 48-year-old female asked:
I was prescribed losartan, lercanil, furosamid 1 month ago. my creatinin is 1.06, (0.66 a year ago). i replaced ace inhibitor with an alfa-blockator prazosin and furasamid with hidrohlothiazid. does beta-blockator elevate creatinine?

Creatinine: Beta blocker does not directly elevate creatinine. However, the other medications mentioned---ACE inhibitor, furosemide, hydrochloride are more likely to do so. Stay well hydrated. Follow up with your physician to evaluate continuing need for these medications.
