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.

Are all nsaids drugs forbidden when kidneys are damaged with chronic kidney disease, meaning that only corticoid might be given against inflammatory ?

Are all nsaids drugs forbidden when kidneys are damaged with chronic kidney disease, meaning that only corticoid might be given against inflammatory ?

It depends: I see that you have both polycystic kidney disease and an enthesopathy, the latter being an illness for which the nsaids are extremely valuable. I have little use for "cookbook medicine" ("people with ___ can't take ___"). Your physician will explain the risks and benefits (relief from pain, you must stay well-hydrated) to using nsaids in our situation. ...Read more

Cervical traction and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is also helpful. A Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack or neuropathic pain medicines like Gabapentin (Neurontin) can calm the nerve down. ...Read more
