I have an abcess on my stomach.My doctor lanced it snd drained it.She put me on Augmentin for thr infection.Meanwhile I'm itching allover.Also I read that you shouldn't take Augmentin if you have a kidney disease.I have stage 3 kidney disease.What do you think I should do?Is it safe for me to take Benadtyl for the itching?
The product information states:
"Patients with Renal Impairment
Patients with impaired renal function do not generally require a reduction in dose unless the impairment is severe. Renal impairment patients with a glomerular filtration rate of <30 mL/min should not receive the 875‑mg dose. Patients with a glomerular filtration rate of 10 to 30 mL/min should receive 500 mg or 250 mg every 12 hours, depending on the severity of the infection. Patients with a glomerular filtration rate less than 10 mL/min should receive 500 mg or 250 mg every 24 hours, depending on severity of the infection."
Easy for me to say with a GFR of 125ml/minute. :-(
