can antidepressants affect kidney function?

Not common

Open-uri20120728-31744-beoanv
Some antidepressants have been linked to nonspecific renal failure, but they have not been established as the only causative factor. More often, the challenge is the other way 'round: needing to treat patients who have renal failure, for depression. In those cases, we often have to decrease the dose of antidepressant. Lithium, mainly a mood stabilizer, CAN affect kidney function.

Can accutane affect kidney?

Rarely

Open-uri20130501-19251-1fbrr28
There are case reports of glomerulonephritis occurring in isotretinoin patients at a very rare level (one case in 38,667 reported to FDA). There are also reports of isotretinoin curing glomerulonephritis in lab animals, so if the medication is helping your acne, be sure to monitor body systems carefully through the prescribing physician.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

Can penicillin affect kidney function?

Yes but rare

Open-uri20120831-14601-10yik50
Penicillin is mostly metabolized/breakdown by the liver and the by-product is then excreted to the outside world via the kidneys in the urine. Typically this does not affect kidney functions, but in the rare cases when penicillin causes interstitial nephritis, renal function is affected. SO, if you are not taking any else and now has kidney trouble with penicillin, get it checked. Good luck.

Can Grave's disease affect kidney function?

Graves' disease

Graves_disease
If left untreated or if a patient goes into a "thyroid storm" there can be side effects that can lead to renal damage, but overall it tends not to be a long term or chronic side effect of the overall condition.

does diovan hctz affect kidney function>?

YES

Hctz
Diovan HCTZ (blood pressure med) which is now available generically is a combination of a diuretic (water pill) which does increase "kidney Function" and a drug Valsartan which is an ARB. ARBs also work in the kidney to help control blood pressure by "telling" the kidneys not to retain fluid (and potassium) in response to a lower blood pressure. This has a protective effect for diabetic kidney

Does blood type affect kidney transplantation?

Yes

The vast majority of kidney transplants are done between ABO compatible donor and recipients. Some recipients have very low titers of antibodies against the AB antigens, and they can have a successful transplant if given extra immunosuppression. Remember an O donor can given to anyone and an AB recipient can accept an organ from anyone.

Is taking whey protein shakes safe?will it affect kidney?

Real/Processed Food

Open-uri20130525-825-ri9rfp
Suggest larger/wider focus: As creatures adapted to eat real food from Nature (digestion, selective absorption & complex internal molecular rebuilding under sophisticated internal controls), why would eating crudely processed material you can't see, saved as powder, by people wanting to make a buck, be superior? Safe? Hopefully yes, including kidney function. Wise...? Another issue.

I am taking pencillin daily since last 2 years. Is will affect kidney? or makes any major issues in the future?

Daily penicillin

Kidneys
Will not likely affect your kidney but you are likely to have penicillin resistant bacteria colonizing you. Daily therapy can be used for prophylaxis against rheumatic fever or pneumococcal infection in certain people.
