Can taking Advil (ibuprofen) daily cause kidney damage or liver damage?

Can taking Advil (ibuprofen) daily cause kidney damage or liver damage?

Yes, but unlikely: Advil (ibuprofen) is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug. All nsaids have the potential to cause kidney injury (nephrotoxicity) and elevated liver enzymes (hepatoxicity). Both would be uncommon if used as prescribed in a healthy person, more concerning would be the risk of stomach bleeding. At your age, you should work with your pt to resolve the pain so as to be able to stop taking nsaids in the long run. ...Read more

I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?

Loaded...: You need to discuss your current medication regimen with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) or qualified Internist or Family Physician. The Lamictal may be causing aches and pains in and of itself. And it may also affect kidney function. I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read more
