One kidney lost to carcinoma... have been warned to never take acetaminifin.
Is guafenesin safe for me to take?
Hi, i did a little research and have cut and pasted the following paragraph...
The metabolites of theophylline, which are generally undetectable in patients with normal renal function, may accumulate in patients with renal impairment and contribute to the toxicity of theophylline. In addition, the plasma protein binding of theophylline may be significantly decreased in renal impairment, resulting in elevated free drug concentrations and further increasing the risk of toxicity. Therapy with theophyllines should be administered cautiously in patients with impaired renal function. Dosage adjustments and more intensive monitoring of serum theophylline concentrations may be required.
I don't know if this makes a lot of sense to you? I know that a potential side effect is difficulty urinating, so having the one kidney could be even more problematic. I think you should discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist to be safe. Sorry i can't help any further.
